Grants of between £1,500 and £10,000 are available to UK organisations (and occasionally individuals) who do not qualify for charitable funding because they may be viewed as too radical or political. The Trust supports campaigns to create a more just and democratic society and to redress political and social injustices.



o Application deadline: Friday 14 January 2022.

o Funder: The Andrew Wainwright Reform Trust Limited (the Trust is a private company limited by guarantee without share capital, incorporated on 7 May 1991. Company number 02608087. The Trust normally awards grants totalling between £90,000 and £110,000 annually).

o Who can apply: UK organisations that are ineligible for charitable funding. This means that registered charities and similar organisations are not eligible to apply and should instead contact the Scurrah Wainwright Charity, which supports a wide range of charitable projects with an emphasis on social reform and tackling the root causes of poverty.

Applications are considered in two stages:

Stage 1 – applicants are asked to complete and submit a preliminary registration form which will register an interest in submitting a full application, and to allow an initial assessment to be made. A full application is not required at this point. 

Stage 2 - if the Trust is interested in a proposal, it will ask the applicant to submit a full application which should meet the detailed requirements explained below.

There is no standard application form. Applicants are asked to submit:

1. Up to four A4 pages setting out your proposal.
2. A full budget for the project, 
3. A copy of the applicant’s most recent audited annual accounts or an up-to-date statement of income & expenditure (if recently formed).

Further information and guidance is available on the Trust’s website.

The Trust operates three application deadlines each year, on 14 January, 14 May and 14 September.

The next application deadline is therefore Friday 14 January 2022.
