Geographical remit: 


We specialise in identifying and supporting under-represented communities and groups, particularly communities in low socio-economic areas, and aim to tackle entrenched social problems. Working closely with local and national donors and funders, we find the community organisations to fit individual funding priorities.


From supporting young people’s complex mental health needs, reducing the impact of loneliness and isolation on older people, or supporting families facing life with a child with disabilities, we are fearless in being a grant maker achieving real, positive, social change.

HIWCF ensures that small organisations receive funding and support so that they can continue to provide the essential care, support and opportunities for the most vulnerable in our communities.  

We offer a range of giving options to individuals, businesses, professional advisors and existing Trusts. We can create endowment funds, and legacies, and can transfer an existing fund – all in the most secure and tax efficient way possible.
