Woodward Trust

The Woodward Trust provides grants to support smaller organisations with an annual turnover of less than £300,000 working to improve their local area.
The Trust offers the following types of funding:
o Small grants of £500-£5,000 (156 grants were made during the previous financial year, only 9 of which were for £3,000 or more);
o Large grants over £5,000 (only 4 grants were made in this category last year). Large grants are usually given to charities known to the Trustees; and
o Children's Summer Play Scheme grants, £200-£1,000 (76 grants were made last financial year). For the summer play scheme grants, the charities' annual income must be less than £100,000.
Funding is primarily for one-off projects, but the Trustees are willing to consider funding running costs, including core cost and salaries.
Applications must be in support of the following activities within the Trust's current funding priorities:
Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour;
Minority groups including refugees, gypsies and travellers. (projects that promote integration and community cohesion will be favoured):
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);
Disability projectswhich 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;
Homelessness, especially affecting young people and women, and covering facilities such as women's refuges;
