  • The Woodward Charitable Trust (families and young people)

    Created: 16/11/2021

    The Woodward Charitable Trust will fund projects that help families and young people and that are aiming to improve the life chances of the beneficiaries. It prefers projects that promote community cohesion and the development of skills that will change the outlook and outcomes for the users. Organisations that promote volunteering and involve both past and present users in their delivery are encouraged.

    It is looking for organisations that aim to achieve a positive impact in at least one of the following areas:

    • Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour.
    • Disadvantaged families.
    • Prisoners and ex-offenders and specifically projects that maintain and develop contact with prisoner’s families and help with the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners and/or ex-offenders after their release.

    The Trustees favour small-scale, locally-based initiatives and most grants are only for one year.

    Who can apply

    Registered charities, Charity Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) and Community Interest Companies (CICs).
