Warburtons supports charities and the community in three ways: with financial support, product donations and the personal involvement of individual people – both Warburton family members and employees.

Their main focus is on grass roots activities that have a positive effect on the aspirations, education, skills and employability of young people, as well as projects that are centred on family life, promoting healthier lifestyles and contributing to improvements in the local community.

Their National School Visitor Programme has been running for more than 20 years. Each year, trained teams from our bakeries visit around 1,500 primary schools, sharing our knowledge of bread making and nutrition with students. These are practical, informative learning experiences and also lots of fun.If you are a teacher and would like to organise a school visit, please contact Warburtons Customer Care Team for details. They will be able to put you in touch with your local bakery.

Their financial giving programme is aimed at supporting projects, activities and organisations that have charitable aims and will be of real direct benefit to local communities. The support they provide should reach charities and organisations delivering work that aligns to their priorities and has a direct and tangible impact on people’s lives.

They will support organisations that focus on solving significant social issues, as defined through our Financial Giving Policy. They will support charities and organisations financially in two ways: grant support and project support.

They have a clear definition of both grants and projects:

  • Community grants: are for small sums of money, that can be used for something specific that will benefit the cause you support. e.g. Buying equipment, supporting a community day etc.
  • Projects: Funding for community projects is for a clear, identifiable project that can be attributed to our support or might enable the organisation to extend what they currently undertake. They will be able to identify and report on the impact, in an in-depth manner.

Application Form: Apply via an online process on the website. Community Grants are open to applications from England, Wales and Scotland, for amounts up to and including £250.

Deadline: Applications can be submitted at any time.
