Woodward Charitable Trust, playshemes grant

Woodward Charitable Trust set aside funds for summer playschemes for children between the ages of 5-16 years. Trustees only fund programmes that run for a minimum of 2 weeks or 10 days across the summer holidays. Grants can only be paid to registered charities. If you are not a registered charity, please give full name and address of a registered charity who has agreed to accept a grant on your behalf. Please note you will need to upload a copy of their most recent audited accounts at the end of the application form.

Most grants awarded are in the range of £500 to £1,000. Around 35 grants are made each year.

Preference is given to:

  • small local playschemes that provide a wide-ranging programme of activities. Trustees prefer activities that are relatively inexpensive such as crafts and cooking, as well as outdoor activities and sport.
  • schemes that involve a large number of children.
  • schemes catering for children from disadvantaged backgrounds or who are disabled.
  • schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers.
  • Deadline is Thursday 8th April for more info go to The Woodward Charitable Trust
