About this fund

The Swire Charitable Trust awards grants via three funding programmes:

– Opportunity: Improving life changes, realising potential
– Environment: Connecting people to the environment
– Heritage: Regeneration through restoration.

They prioritise charities that operate in some of the most economically disadvantaged parts of the UK and work with people from the most challenged backgrounds.

They are happy to offer unrestricted grants to charities whose work is closely aligned with their funding priorities.

When to apply
They run a rolling programme with regular meetings, so there are no deadlines. Once you have submitted your application it will be assigned to the next available meeting. You can expect to receive an outcome within 2-3 months of submission.

How to apply
Complete the online eligibility test on the funder website. If eligible, you will be directed to the full application form.
