Woodward Charitable Trust – Summer Playscheme Grants Programme

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 schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers. Grants can only be paid to registered charities. Organisations that are not a registered charity can still apply but need the agreement of a registered charity to accept the grant on their behalf. The deadline for receipt of applications for the Summer Playschemes is the 7th April 2017.

The Woodward Charitable Trust offers Summer Playscheme grants of between £500 and £1,000 to registered charities for the provision of summer playschemes for children between the ages of 5 and 16 years. The charity’s annual income should be under £100,000. Approximately 35 grants are awarded each year for playschemes that run for a minimum of 2 weeks or 10 days across the summer holidays.

Preference is given to:

  • small local playschemes;
  • schemes 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
  • schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers.

Funding is primarily for one-off projects, but the Trustees are willing to consider funding running costs (including core cost and salaries). Grants can only be paid to registered charities. Organisations that are not a registered charity can still apply but need the agreement of a registered charity to accept the grant on their behalf.

The deadline for receipt of applications for the Summer Playschemes is 7th April 2017.
