The DWF Foundation was founded by DWF LLP to provide funds, resources and support to help communities achieve their full potential
They aim to help local communities work together to implement change, focusing on the four key areas of Homelessness, Health & Wellbeing, Employability, and Education. Within these areas, the Foundation seek to support projects that develop and improve local communities by:
- Tackling a specific community issue;
- Helping voluntary and community groups become more effective and efficient;
- Encouraging the involvement in the community of those too often excluded; and
- Enabling young people to develop skills for the benefit of the community.
The DWF Foundation only accept applications from Registered Charites. The Foundation has no minimum grant size and tend to offer grants under £5,000 and will not offer multi-year grants.
Applications to the DWF Foundation are made through an online application form which can be found on their website here.
Applications can be made at any time, with decisions being made by the Board of Trustees throughout the year (see their grant guidelines).
