The Charles Hayward Foundation: Small Grant Programme

Health & Social Care Older People

The Charles Hayward Foundation is a grant-making charitable trust offering grants to charities registered in the UK.

The Small Grant Programme makes grants of up to £7,000 in the following categories:

Generally, when funding projects, the Foundation value projects that develop, expand and replicate a tried and tested approach but are also interested in supporting creative solutions to problems which seem to be entrenched and elude resolution.

Projects that are preventative and provide early intervention are valued. The Foundation favour projects that respond to a well researched and clear need, provide intervention based on evidence of what works, are able to demonstrate value for money and have a clear understanding of short-term effects and long-term impact of the intervention they propose.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Applications are reviewed every two to three months.
