The Wolfson Foundation, a London based UK charity, has highlighted a shortage of funding applications from Scotland and is actively appealing for more grant applications from Scottish charities and grassroots organisations – particularly those working in the field of disability.

The charity’s founder Sir Isaac Wolfson was born in Glasgow in 1897 and the foundation aims to promote excellence in four categories – science and medicine; health; education; and the arts and humanities.

Funding is available for capital costs – such as infrastructure, equipment, building refurbishments, and vehicles.  The initial applications stage is fairly straightforward and only involves a short form.

Autumn round deadlines:-
Stage 1 applications: accepted before 1 July
Stage 2 applications: deadline 1 September
Funding decision: December
