The Wakeham Trust

In general the Trust 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


They are becoming increasingly focused on education, in the broadest sense of the term.  they have supported homework clubs for deprived children and refugees; 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 have helped new Scout and Guide groups to set up in places where there is no provision.

But education goes beyond children – and have also helped groups of pensioners, for example, to set up oral history projects; and small and specialised music projects.
