Woodward Charitable Trust: Children's Summer Playschemes

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

Trustees only fund programmes that run for a minimum of 2 weeks or 10 days across the summer holidays.

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. Please note we will need a copy of their most recent audited accounts.

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
  • 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
