The Wenlock Forester Trust (formerly the Much Wenlock Forester Charitable Trust) was established in February 2011 following a decision by the then then current owners of the Nursing Home, ExtraCare, to dispose of the property as it no longer fitted their future business plan. The property was eventually sold to an experienced proprietor English Care Ltd. As part of the terms of the disposal the community benefited from a donation of £250,000 from ExtraCare in recognition of the money raised in the past. This capital sum was used to form the Trust.

In our first 13 years we have made 67 grants totalling £85,383

For grant applications the required application forms can be found under the grants section of this website.
