W G Little Fund
This trust fund is not part of the service budgets of Swindon Borough Council but is administered under the trust fund bequest. The bequest of the fund has been reviewed and over the coming years, to greater align fund use with the aims of the trust, only those who have previously successfully applied will be eligible to re-apply. It is anticipated that 2015/16 will be the final year of this award process.
No awards are available to new applicants.
The 2012/13 review process is now complete and those who have been successful in their application will soon receive allocated funds.
The process for 2013/14 is expected to begin in April 2013. Notification letters and forms will be sent to those meeting eligibility criteria based upon the historic record held from 2011/12. These are currently planned to be distributed for the start of May 2013, with returns due in July.
If you believe that you received an award in 2011/12, and the child the award was made for will remain under 16 years old during 2013/14 academic year, but you have moved house since the last award was made, please provide notification of the old and new address, child’s name and date of birth, and your name to:

Please note that for 2011/12, the award process was undertaken by The Community Foundation for Wiltshire and Swindon on behalf of Swindon Borough Council. They have no further involvement in the award process and no requests should be made to them. Any queries should be directed to “WG Little Fund Queries” at the above address.
