The Woodward Charitable Trust's Children's Summer Playscheme Grants provide funding for summer playschemes for children between the ages of 5-16 years. 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; and/or
schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers.
Trustees only fund programmes that run for a minimum of 2 weeks or 10 days across the summer holidays.
Who 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. The charities annual income must be under £100,000.
How to apply
Trustees only consider appeals made on their own application form and every section must be completed including the Statement of Financial Activities. Applications are available on the funder website.
When to apply
The next round will close at 12:00 on 06 April 2023.
