Swire Charitable Trust

This charitable trust makes grants in 3 main areas:

  • Community & Social Welfare: in particular, charities that help to foster long-term positive change in the lives of disadvantaged people and their communities, with a focus on care leavers, people with disabilities, homeless people, ex-services people, and victims of slavery and human trafficking.
  • Education & Training: charities that help children and adults from all backgrounds to fulfil their potential and make the most of their talents, with a focus on narrowing the attainment gap, improving essential literacy and numeracy skills, and empowering people (young and older) who are NEET to engage with education and training.
  • Heritage: charities working to community regeneration, particularly in areas of deprivation and especially smaller charities which offer employment or volunteering opportunities for local residents.

Applications are currently open across all 3 areas.  The Trust is open to making both restricted and unrestricted grants – so if you’re seeking core funding, this may be a good one to apply for.  There is no minimum or maximum size of grant, and the Trust may decide to award more or less than you apply for.

To be eligible, you must be a registered charity and the work must be taking place in the UK.  The application process is simple – just apply using the online form.  Applications for amounts up to £25,000 will usually receive a decision in one month, and applications for larger amounts can expect to receive a decision within 4 months.  For more information, and to apply, visit the Trust’s website here.
