The Walker Construction Trust
Relief for those in need
Our aim is to provide local support and assistance.
The Walker Construction Trust funds individuals, not-for-profit organisations and registered charities with causes close to the hearts of our employees and the communities our businesses operate in.
Creating strong bonds with local communities.
The Walker Construction Trust has meant we can make a real difference to the lives of more people, and organisations. The trust connects with smaller, locally based organisations and individuals who desperately need funding, equipment, assistance or general support. 100% of donations are made to good causes, all admin fees are carried by Walker Construction (UK) Ltd.

You may apply for a grant at any time. Trustees meet quarterly but procedures exist to give approvals between meeting dates if necessary.
We do not publish the dates of our Trustee meetings.
Applications that can provide a clear outline of how and when the grant will be spent, are much more likely to be approved faster.
Once you have submitted your application via our online form, you will receive an acknowledgement by e-mail.
We will assess all acceptable applications on a case by case basis. Please note large grants are the exception however and most of our grant awards are under £10,000.
