The Bruce Wake Charitable Trust was founded in 1993 with the specific aim of encouraging and enabling people with disabilities to participate in leisure activities.
Voluntary and community organisations based in the United Kingdom may apply for a grant. There is no match funding requirement.
The Trust will only fund an organisation once during any twelve month period.
PLEASE NOTE: grants to individuals are only accepted through a charitable organisation.
During the year ending 5 April 2015 the Trust awarded 170 grants (2014: 155) totalling £477,683 (2014: £412,229).
The Trust also awarded £79,242 (2014: £40,840) on behalf of individuals.
Grants ranged from less than £1,000 to £28,000 and included:
Disability Snowsport UK (£10,000);
Wheelpower (£20,000);
RoRo Sailing (£5,000); and
West Coast Crash Wheelchair Rugby (£5,000).
The Trust considers all written applications for grants at trustees’ meetings, which are held quarterly. Applications are considered on merit based on how closely the activities of the applicant fit with the objectives of the Trust.
The following objectives are favoured but are not exclusive:
o The potential beneficiaries are physically disabled wheelchair users;
o Improved access for wheelchair users is proposed; and
o A sporting or leisure activity involving disabled wheelchair users is proposed.
Applications may be submitted at any time. Applications should be made online via the Trust's website together with a copy of their latest accounts.
