The Tony and Sheelagh Williams Charitable Foundation is an independent grant-making charity.  It was established in 2008 following the sale of the Williams family’s printing business, Williams Lea. The foundation gives funds to charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales within a set of carefully considered guidelines.

The aim of the foundation is to have the greatest tangible benefit to people most in need.

We favour charities that support the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in society.  This may include, for example, charities that address the needs of people who are suffering because of poverty, homelessness, abuse, neglect, illness, disability, addiction or age.


The foundation is temporarily closed for further applications but will reopen in the future – please check here for further updates
