The Webb Memorial Trust is a registered charity; (Charitable Trust No. 313760). The Trust was set up in 1944 as a memorial to Beatrice Webb.
The Trust has committed the vast majority of its funding resources to a structured programme that will be focused on the issues of poverty and inequality in the UK. As a result of that only a very limited amount of money is available to fund applications outside of that programme.
However funding applications* will be welcomed provided they relate to the provision of solutions to the reduction in poverty and inequality in the UK.
Any proposal should reflect the original aims and ambitions of the Webbs – the achievement of social and economic justice and the advancement of education and learning with respect to the history and problems of government and social policy. Applications should be made online using this application form. Other forms of application will not be accepted.
*Funding applications from individuals including students will be rejected.
