Each year the Woodward Charitable Trust sets aside funds for summer play schemes for children between the ages of 5-16 years.
Most grants awarded are in the range of £500 to £1,000. Around 35 grants are made each year.
The Trust’s awards for 2019 summer play schemes have been posted on its website and include:
o The Christian Evangelical Centre.
o The Women and Families Resource Centre.
o DASH (Disability Activity Super Heroes), and
o Tiverton Adventure Playground.
Preference is given to:
o Small local play schemes that provide a wide-ranging programme of activities.
o Schemes that involve a large number of children.
o Schemes catering for those from disadvantaged backgrounds or that have a disability.
o schemes that are inclusive such as projects that work with children from a range of backgrounds, abilities and race, and
o Schemes where past users are encouraged to come back and help as volunteers.
