Warburtons Trust

The Warburtons Trust provides two types of grant scheme with the overall aim of supporting projects, activities and organisations that will be of real benefit to families and have a direct and tangible social impact on people’s lives:
1. Community grants of up to and including £250 for organisations in England, Scotland and Wales. This scheme operates an open application process.
2. Project grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 for projects that will take place within 15 miles of a Warburtons bakery or depot site. This scheme operates a closed application process (this means that the Trust will contact appropriate organisations and invite an application). 
To find the locations of a Warburton bakery or depot site, follow this LINK. There are two locations in the South West, in Newton Abbot and Bristol. A 15 mile radius from Newton Abbot encompasses, for example, Exeter, Exmouth and Ivybridge, while a 15 mile radius from Bristol includes Bath, Portishead and a little bit of Weston-super-Mare. The radius around any location can be measured using Free Map Tools.
Funding is available for projects that focus on supporting families that need the most help and in line with the following social themes:
Health - help families lead healthier lifestyles.
Financial stability - help families manage their finances.
Worklessness - help families recognise the economic and social benefits of employment.
Health education - help educate families about healthy lifestyles (not for Project Grants).
Aspiration - help raise career aspirations to improve prospects for them and their families.
Employability and skills - help raise employment prospects for family members seeking employment.
Community grants can be used for something specific that will benefit the cause the organisation supports, such as buying equipment or supporting a community day.
Project grants are for a clear, identifiable project or to enable the organisation to extend what they currently undertake.
Organisations should be able to identify and report on the impact, in an in-depth manner.
Not for profit organisations with charitable purposes that are operating in England, Scotland and Wales are eligible to apply.
Applications for Community Grants may be submitted at any time. Applicants should complete the online application form.
