The Woodward Charitable Trust: Children’s Summer Playschemes

Youth Thursday April 8th, 2021 12:00pm

The Woodward Charitable Trust’s Children’s Summer Playscheme fund awards grants of up to £1,000 to small local playschemes that provide a wide-ranging programme of activities to children between 5-16 years old.

The Trust prioritises:

  • small local playschemes that provide a wide-ranging programme of activities. Trustees prefer activities that are relatively inexpensive such as crafts and cooking, as well as outdoor activities and sport;
  • schemes that involve a large number of children;
  • schemes catering for children from disadvantaged backgrounds or who are disabled; and
  • schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers.

The Trust is unable to fund:

  • trips that are only social such as to a theme park or cinema. Trustees prefer to fund trips that are educational and motivational or relate to the natural environment such as to the seaside or countryside;
  • charities whose annual turnover exceeds £100,000;
  • overseas projects;
  • playgroups;
  • individuals in any capacity; and
  • educational fees.

Only programmes that run for a minimum of two weeks or ten days across the summer holidays can apply.

Grants can only be paid to registered charities. If you are not a registered charity, please give full name and address of a registered charity who has agreed to accept a grant on your behalf. Please note, a copy of their most recent audited accounts will need to be included in the application.

Opens: Monday 15 March 2021
Thursday 8 April 2021, 12 noon
