Each year the trustees of the Woodward Charitable Trust set aside funds for summer playschemes for children between the ages of 5-16 years.

Project budgets must be submitted with all applications whether they are via the website, email or post. The application form should be completed without exceeding one page. If supplementary information is sent this should be separate from the information requested by the Trustees on their form.

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 we will need a copy of their most recent audited accounts.

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

Who for: 

Preference is given to:

  • small local playschemes that provide a wide-ranging programme of activities
  • schemes that involve a large number of children
  • schemes catering for those from disadvantaged backgrounds or that have a disability
  • schemes that are inclusive such as projects that work with children from a range of backgrounds, abilities and race
  • schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers

Exclusions

Trustees will not fund:

  • trips that are only social. Trustees prefer to fund trips that are educational and motivational.
  • charities whose annual turnover exceeds £100,000
  • overseas projects
  • playgroups
  • individuals in any capacity
  • educational fees
