We are dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged people in Wiltshire & Swindon. We are building a permanent endowment fund to support the voluntary sector in our county by working with donors who are interested in supporting their local community. We give grants to groups and individuals fitting our criteria, during 2012/13 we distributed £770k in funding to the county.
