$15,000-$25,000 Funding for Women and Children living in Extreme Poverty. Deadline to apply: 31 July 2021

Examples of projects that the 1989 Willan Charitable Trust will fund include:
Projects that meet the needs of communities experiencing high levels of deprivation.
Self-help initiatives that improve local quality of life.
Services for young people that address educational needs or offer diversion from crime and anti-social behaviour.
Projects assisting local communities affected by crime and anti-social behaviour
Art projects that help tackle deprivation or improve local quality of life.
The work of youth organisations and, in particular, the Sea Cadets, Scouts, Guides, Boys’ Brigades and other uniformed organisations. Grants here will not generally exceed £1,500.
Projects that draw on the region’s rich maritime tradition to deliver improvements in local quality of life or address deprivation.
Gap year voluntary work through Project Trust. Grants are limited to a maximum of £500 towards expenses in undertaking a voluntary placement. Applicants must normally reside in the North East region.
The Fund will tend to weight its support towards local registered charities, including those operating as branches of national charities. The preference is for charities with expenditure of less than £1m in the North East. Applications from national charities are welcomed, but only for projects that solely benefit the North East. Applicants should provide evidence that they are well placed to meet identified needs within the region, indicating why support from local funders is essential.
Eligibility Criteria
Applications are welcomed from registered charities, exempted or excepted organisations, based in, or benefiting, residents of Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Teesside.
Other organisations and community groups may not apply, unless they are working in partnership with a registered charity, which will act as the lead organisation and apply on their behalf.
The trustees tend to weight their support towards local charitable organisations, including those operating as branches of national charities. The Trustees preference is for charities with expenditure of less than £1m in the North East.
Applications from national charities are welcomed, but only for projects that solely benefit the North East. Applicants should provide evidence that they are well placed to meet identified needs within the region, indicating why support from local funders is essential.
Applicants with more than six months’ running costs in reserve will not usually be considered for a grant, unless the application demonstrates that funding the project from reserves will reduce them to an imprudent level.
Willan grants are for a maximum of one year, although continuation funding will be considered on an annual basis. However, the trustees will not normally consider more than three applications in any six-year period.
