Grants for the provision of leisure activities for the disabled in the UK

| Return|

The Bruce Wake Charitable Trust provides grants for the provision of leisure activities for the disabled in the UK.

The Trust was established to encourage and assist the provision of leisure activities for the disabled.

The Trustees will consider grant applications related to the provision of leisure activities for the disabled but favour particularly applications whereby the potential beneficiaries meet one or all of the following criteria:

  • The potential beneficiaries are physically disabled wheelchair users

  • Improved access for wheelchair users is proposed

  • A sporting or leisure activity involving disabled wheelchair users is proposed

The Trusts grant giving policy is to make no more than one donation in any 12 month period to an organisation and in any three year period to individuals. ‘For profit’ registered companies will not be considered

Applications meeting the above criteria will be considered from charitable organisations. Applications on behalf of individuals will only be accepted through a charitable organisation or equivalent recognised body

All applications should be submitted together with appropriate financial information. Charitable organisations should include a copy of their latest financial statements

Trustees meet quarterly to consider grant applications.
