Warburtons Community Grants

We wish to support charitable organisations that require small grants to help them deliver a broader activity.

Who can apply

We wish to support charitable organisations that require small grants to help them deliver a broader activity.

How to apply

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

Our Community Grants are reviewed on a quarterly basis to help streamline the process. 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 charities will be informed thereafter.

The new deadlines for charities to apply for Community Grants are below.
