The Woodward Charitable Trust primarily funds charitable organisations in the UK. If Woodward funds overseas projects it is usually via UK charities which can ensure that funds are being well used. Woodward favours charities which make good use of volunteers and encourage past and current users to participate.
Applications will only be considered if they fall within the following areas:
- Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour
- Prisoners and ex-offenders. Projects that help the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners and/or ex-offenders are supported as well as requests to help prisoners’ families
- Disadvantaged women, covering refuges, domestic violence and parenting
- Disability projects, which can include rehabilitation and training for people who are either physically disabled or learning disabled
- Arts outreach work by local groups involving disadvantaged people
- Projects that promote integration and community cohesion amongst minority groups, including refugees and travellers
Small grants of between £100-£5,000 are available.
The Trustees favour small-scale, locally based initiatives. Funding is primarily for one-off projects, but the Trustees are willing to consider funding running costs (including core cost and salaries).
