Charitable trusts, grants and awards

Charitable trusts, grants and awards

Charitable trusts and grants provide vital funding for specialist areas of our work, including our pre-bereavement service and our Side by Side programme, which brings bereaved children and families together. To discuss further please contact Jackie McDowell, Trusts and Grants Fundraiser. 

SeeSaw is also fortunate to have received several awards nominations in the past, recognising the quality of our service. 

We have highlighted some of our recent funding and awards successes below. 

17 June 2016: Oxfordshire Business Awards Finalist

SeeSaw attended the Oxfordshire Business Awards on 17 June. The Awards are firmly established as a benchmark for excellence in today’s competitive business environment, and SeeSaw was thrilled to be a finalist in The Oxford Times Charity & Community Award category. 


18 April 2016: SeeSaw wins GSK IMPACT Award

Seesaw has won a GSK IMPACT Award, a national award run in partnership with The King’s Fund that recognises excellence in charities improving health and wellbeing in their communities. SeeSaw beat more than 400 organisations to win the accolade and £30,000 in funding. Seesaw received the prize at a ceremony held at the Science Museum in London on Thursday 12 May, along with nine other winners. 

Lisa Weaks, Third Sector Manager for The King's Fund, said: "This is an important small charity putting the needs of bereaved children at the heart of the organisation. Despite limited resources it clearly works hard to provide appropriate timely and personalised support at a time when young people are at most need. The number of schools it is working in is very impressive. This award is clear recognition of the important work it does."


7 April 2016: SeeSaw awarded grant from Global’s Make Some Noise

We are thrilled to announce that SeeSaw has been awarded a grant of £30,000 from Global’s Make Some Noise - a national charity that helps change young lives. The charity supports small but brilliant projects across the UK, which help youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. 

Global's Make Some Noise said "[we are] delighted to support SeeSaw. We're big fans of the service they provide. We’re passionate about giving a voice to small charities who find it hard to get heard, and we look forward to hearing about the difference that the team at SeeSaw will make with our grant.”
