The W G Edwards Charitable Foundation is an independent grant-making charity, which assists with the provision of care and aims to improve the wellbeing of older people in the UK. The Foundation gives grants to capital projects, refurbishment and for equipment, in addition to innovative schemes for ongoing care and to help people live active and fulfilling lives.
The aim of the Foundation is to improve the quality of life and Trustees consider applications which make a difference to the health and wellbeing of people over 65. The Foundation supports organisations which promote a proactive approach to health and physical and mental wellbeing. Trustees make donations to charitable causes at their discretion, within carefully considered criteria laid down by the Founder.
Grants are given to UK-based charities that can demonstrate how they are making a difference to peoples’ lives. Trustees will also consider making donations to registered charities based in the three Crown Dependencies.
We are unable to support individuals or overseas projects. Trustees are unable to give grants to other groups of people.
