Funding support for the third sector

Wakeham Trust

They like to help projects that are small scale and would find it hard to get funding from big trusts. They do not respond to national appeals and (almost) never pay for building work, vehicles, or professional salaries

Grants tend to be under £2500

From their website – “We are becoming increasingly focused on education, in the broadest sense of the term.  For example, we have recently established a summer course for pre-university students at a comprehensive school which is seeking to improve its success rate when applying to leading universities; we have supported homework clubs for deprived children and refugees; we backed a Somali refugee who wanted to set up an urban farm to introduce his English neighbours, in a deprived city neighbourhood, to agriculture and livestock; and we have helped new Scout and Guide groups to set up in places where there is no provision.   ”

What sorts of projects do we help?
