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 projects which help people live active and fulfilling lives.
The aim of the Foundation is to improve quality of life and Trustees consider applications which make a difference to people over the age of 65. The Foundation supports organisations which promote a proactive approach to 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 peoples’ lives better. If your charity has a mixed age group of beneficiaries, the Foundation will consider an application if at least 80% are over the age of 65. We are unable to support individuals, groups of people under the age of 65 or overseas projects.
The Foundation award funds to UK charities which have, for at least two years, been registered with the:
- Charity Commission for England and Wales
- Regulator for Charities in Northern Ireland
- Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator
