The Wakeham Trust

Local Grants

The Wakeham Trust generally fund projects that are small scale and would find it hard to get funding from big trusts.

The Trust does not favour any particular areas of activity. They usually look for the following characteristics in a project:

  • It is something new for this particular area
  • It is small
  • It does not employ staff
  • It is not well established
  • It has the potential to become self-supporting
  • It is outward looking and helps a lot of people
  • It has a UK charity number, or can find a charity to accept funds on its behalf

The Trust usually makes grants of between £125 and £2,500. There are no deadlines and the Trust operates a rolling scheme.
