Summer playschemes funding with Woodward Charitable Trust…Apply now!

Woodward Charitable Trust

The Woodward Charitable Trust awards around 35 grants each year for summer playschemes for children aged 5 to 16. Most grants awarded are in the range of £500 to £1,000.

Grants can only be paid to registered charities that have an annual income not exceeding £100,000.

This funder will not award grants for trips that are only social. “Trustees prefer to fund trips that are educational and motivational.”


“Preference is given to:

  • small local playschemes that provide a wide-ranging programme of activities
  • schemes that involve a large number of children
  • schemes catering for those from disadvantaged backgrounds or that have a disability
  • schemes that are inclusive such as projects that work with children from a range of backgrounds, abilities and race
  • schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers”
