We want to reassure organisations we fund that we will continue to support you through this uncertain time, and that our funding is flexible and intended to help you deal with challenges.
We understand that it might be difficult for you to meet the outcomes of your grant when staff and volunteers will not be available, events or meetings may need to be cancelled, and services need to be provided in different ways. We’re interested to hear about this as part of your regular reporting, but you don’t have to take the time to tell us about it now unless a chat would be helpful.
Please let us know by phone or email (our office is now closed to visitors) if we could help by moving payment or reporting dates, flexing timeframes for delivery of outcomes, adapting activities, or anything else.
We are lucky to be able to work from home at SFCT so, in the event that we have to fully close the office, we should be able to get back to you as normal.

For more information on the Trust’s legacy and the Glasshouse project, visit The Woolbeding Charity’s page.

Tedworth does not accept unsolicited proposals, as its grant-making tends to be concentrated on projects initiated by the trustees, mainly in the areas of:
Trustees will consider proposals in the field of autistic spectrum disorder. Wherever possible, projects are preferred which include people with ASD in decision-making. The trustees do not usually fund capital projects in this area of grant-making. The trustees do not make grants directly to individuals, or fund pure research.
The Trust also considers proposals in the field of disability, violence and access to justice. This is a developing field of interest. At present grants in this area mainly arise from trustees’ own research and that of their expert advisers.
The trustees have an annual small grants programme for play schemes run in the summer school holiday which support children with ASD.
In the UK the Trust supports work with disabled children and young people; children and young people with life-limiting and/or life-threatening conditions; and, the families of b oth groups of children. In Africa, the Trust supports the development of palliative care services, including access to pain relief.
Trustees welcome unsolicited applications for their Small Grants Programme (UK and Africa). Proposals for all other programmes are invited by the Trustees or initiated at their request. The Trustees are keen to learn more about organisations whose work fits within their remit but unsolicited applications are unlikely to be successful.
