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. 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
All application forms must be accompanied by your Child Protection Policy.
