Woodward Charitable Trust: Providing Grants to Charitable Organisations in the United Kingdom

Deadline: 31 January 2019

The Woodward Charitable Trust is accepting applications for its grant program to fund charitable organisations in the UK.

Focus 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 and/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 who are either physically disabled or learning disabled.
  • Arts outreach work by local groups involving disadvantaged people.
  • Projects that promote integration and community cohesion amongst minority groups, including refugees and travellers.

Types of Grant

  • Small grants, £100-£5,000 (around 100 grants made per year).
  • Large grants, over£5,000 (around 5 grants are made per year). Large grants are only given to charities known to the Trustees.
  • The Trustees favour small-scale, locally based initiatives. Funding is primarily for one-off projects, but the Trustees are also willing to fund core costs. Most grants are only for 1 year.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Trust primarily funds charitable organisations in the UK.
  • If Woodward funds overseas projects it is usually via UK charities which can ensure that funds are being well used. Woodward favours charities which make good use of volunteers and encourage past and current users to participate. Their grant-making continues to be primarily reactive but with some selected projects initiated by the trustees.

Exclusions

Trustees DO NOT fund unsolicited applications from charities whose annual income exceeds £300,000 or for:

  • Construction projects such as playgrounds, village halls, and disabled accesses
  • General school appeals including out of hours provision
  • Hospices
  • Medical research
  • Parish facilities
  • Playgroups and pre-school groups
  • Requests for vehicles
  • Individuals in any capacity
  • Educational fees
