The William Wates Memorial Trust

Sports Youth

The William Wates Memorial Trust typically awards grants of between £30,000 – £50,000 (however they are generally around £30,000 over three years) over three years to registered charities and or not for profit enterprises.

Projects should encourage young people (5-19 year olds) experiencing severe disadvantage to keep away from anti-social behaviour and criminal activity, enabling them to fulfil their potential.

In addition, the Trust will look favourably upon projects that:

1. continue to have impact after the support has ended. Helping a young person get a coaching qualification is preferable to facilitating that same young person to play football once a week

2. offer sustainable support for young people: The Trust particularly want to support projects that continue to support individuals long after specific (sometimes intensive) projects come to an end. This may be done in house or through connections with other local organisations.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. The Trust holds three grants meetings per year in late-January, mid-May and late-September.
