The DWF Foundation was founded by DWF LLP to provide funds, resources and support to help communities achieve their full potential.
They aim to help local communities work together to implement change, focusing on the four key areas of
- Health & Wellbeing;
- Employability, and
Within these areas, the Foundation seeks to support projects that develop and improve local communities by:
- tackling a specific community issue;
- helping voluntary and community groups become more effective and efficient;
- encouraging the involvement in the community of those too often excluded; and
- enabling young people to develop skills for the benefit of the community.
The DWF Foundation only accept applications from Registered Charites. The Foundation has no minimum grant size and tend to offer grants under £5,000 and will not offer multi-year grants.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Review meetings take place three times a year. Exact dates are listed on the Grant Guidelines.
