Woodward Charitable Trust

The Woodward Charitable Trust awards grant funding to small-scale, locally-based registered charities in the UK working in the following fields:
o Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour;
o Minority groups including refugees, gypsies and travellers. Projects that promote integration and community cohesion will be favoured.
o 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.
o Disability projects which can include rehabilitation and training for people who are either physically disabled or have a learning disability, as well as help to improve employment prospects.
o Homelessness, especially affecting young people and women, and covering facilities such as women's refuges.
o Arts outreach work by local groups for the benefit of disadvantaged people.
o Environmental projects, especially with a strong educational element.  
The Trust offers the following range of funding:
o Small grants of between £100 and £5,000 (around 100 grants are made per year).
o Large grants of over £5,000 (around five grants are made per year, and are normally awarded to charities already known to the Trustees).
Funding is primarily for one-off projects, but the Trustees are willing to consider funding running costs, including core costs and salaries.
Applications are accepted from UK registered charities with an annual turnover of less than £300,000.
The Trust is particularly interested in helping smaller organisations that offer direct services.
The Trustees do not fund unsolicited applications for the following:
•Charities whose annual turnover exceeds £300,000.
•Construction projects such as playgrounds, village halls, and disabled access.
•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.
Application forms are available from the Trust's website.
All applications must be supported by a detailed project budget.
Applicants are asked not to send their annual report and accounts, unless these are unavailable on the Charity Commission website.
PLEASE NOTE: before submitting an application for a large grant, applicants must contact the administrator. Applications will automatically be rejected unless they have first been discussed with the administrator.
Grants are usually allocated following Trustees' meetings in January and July each year.
The next application deadline is Monday 30 November 2015.
