The Charles Hayward Foundation: Main Grant Programme

Environmental Health & Social Care Heritage

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

The Main Grant Programme makes grants 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.

UK registered charities with an annual income of more than £350,000 may apply for:

  • £10,000 – £25,000 per annum for projects over one to three years
  • up to £25,000 for pilot projects, if it addresses complex problems in an innovative way and may lead to replication if proven effective

The Foundation fund project costs and capital expenditure.

Deadline: The Main Grant Programme has a two stage grant process:

  • Stage 1: A Grant Committee meets on a quarterly basis.  The Committee’s role is to put applications forward to stage 2.
  • Stage 2: Applications recommended by the Grant Committee are considered at one of the Trustees’ meetings which take place on a quarterly basis and are usually held in: February, April, July and November.
