Aims/Priorities: Warburton’s supports charities and the community in three ways: with financial support, product donations and the personal involvement of individual people – both Warburton family members and employees.
Their main focus is on grass roots activities that have a positive effect on the aspirations, education, skills and employability of young people, as well as projects that are centred on family life, promoting healthier lifestyles and contributing to improvements in the local community.
They have a clear definition of both grants and projects:
- Community grants: are for small sums of money that can be used for something specific that will benefit the cause you support. e.g. Buying equipment, supporting a community day etc.
- Projects: Funding for community projects is for a clear, identifiable project that can be attributed to our support or might enable the organisation to extend what they currently undertake. They will be able to identify and report on the impact, in an in-depth manner.
Application Form: Apply via an online process on the website. Community Grants are open to applications from England, Wales and Scotland, for amounts up to and including £250.
Deadline: Applications can be submitted at any time.
