Woodward Charitable Trust – Summer Playschemes

Each year the Trustees of the Woodward Charitable Trust set aside funds for summer playschemes for children from disadvantaged backgrounds between the ages of 5-16 years.

Trustees only fund programmes that run for a minimum of 2 weeks, 10 full days or 20 half days across the summer holidays.
Please note that Trustees will only fund up to 50% of the total cost of a scheme. Most grants awarded are in the range of £500 to £1,000.

Around 35 grants are made each year. Preference is given to:

• 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 where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers.

Deadline: 5th April 2024
