Overview

Warburtons Community Grants provides small grants up to £400 to support charitable organisations towards broader activities which improve Health, Place or Skills for families in their community.

Full details of priorities and eligibility for grants can be found in our Financial Giving Policy.

Based on our localism approach, our community investment funds are allocated to our local bakeries and depots. This helps our Community Champions to make the best decisions for our local communities. We will use your postcode to understand which of our sites is closest to you and they will then receive the application and make a decision.

When to apply

Our Community Grants are decided on a quarterly basis. This means that if you wish to apply for a Community Grant you will need to do so before the corresponding date each quarter. Decisions will be made within 6 weeks of the deadline, and applicants will be informed thereafter. Please note that we receive a large number of requests for grant funding and unfortunately, we are not able to support all applications.
