The Wakeham Trust offers small grants to micro-scale community projects that may find it hard to appeal to larger and more formal funding bodies.
The Trust provides grants of up £2,500 to help people rebuild their communities. They are particularly interested in neighbourhood projects, community arts projects, projects involving community service by young people, or projects set up by those who are socially excluded.
They also support innovative projects to promote excellence in teaching (at any level, from primary schools to universities). Small projects are favoured, often start-ups.
Their core goal is to help small groups of people who are getting together to make a difference in their communities.
Applications should be made by email and can be submitted at any time.
