The Woodward Charitable Trust primarily funds charities, social enterprises and community interest companies (CICs) in the UK. They currently have funding available for organisations involved in the support, development and engagement of volunteers.
Two types of grants are available, with decisions made by the Trustees at bi-annual meetings:
- small grants of £100-£5,000 (around 100 grants made per year) to organisations with an income of less than £300,000
- large grants of over £5,000 (around 5 grants made per year), only awarded to charities known to the Trustees
Applications will only be considered if they fall within the following areas:
- children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour
- prisoners and ex-offenders; projects that help the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners, or ex-offenders; are supported, as well as requests to help prisoners’ families
- disadvantaged women, covering refuges, domestic violence and parenting
- disability projects, which can include rehabilitation and training for people with additional support needs, including physical and learning disabilities
- arts outreach work by local groups involving disadvantaged people
- projects that promote integration and community cohesion amongst minority groups, including refugees and Travellers
The deadline for applications for the next round of funding is 12pm on Wednesday 31st July.
