Welcome to the Wakeham Trust website

The Wakeham Trust has now closed for new applications until January 2015. We still exist, and we will go on doing the same things as we have done since we started up in 1975. We support small, struggling community groups that don't employ staff, that make a really difference in their area, and that are too small to attract the attention of mainstream funding bodies; and projects in schools and universities that promote outstanding teaching and high academic standards. We think these are important things to do, that find it hard to finance themselves from other sources. However, we are entirely run by volunteers. We need to re-write our administration and computer systems, and to move our bulging filing cabinets to a new home. We just don't have the resources to cope with that, at the same time as handling new applications. We are really sorry about that, but it is the only way we can manage the transition. We do not want to spend too much of our limited income on administration. That makes no sense, when the grants we make are relatively small.

If you have already applied, don't worry; we have your application safe and sound and we are dealing with it. In a REAL EMERGENCY you can email us and we will try to do what we can to help. Harold Carter - Chairman.
