The Woodward Charitable Trust‘s grant programme for children’s summer playschemes is open for applications.

What can be funded?

Playschemes for children aged 5 to 16 that run for at least 2 weeks or 10 days across the summer holidays.

Trips can be funded if they are “educational and motivational”.


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”
