As a guide The Foundation, for the past few years, has had a policy of giving half our funds to Welsh projects.

The Ashley Family Foundation - Grants Criteria

The Foundation follows the ethos of the Ashley family and aims to support areas in which the family have a connection such as helping the communities of Mid Wales that supported the growth of the Laura Ashley business.

The trustees wish to focus on the following priorities:


  • Support of charitable textiles projects, including small scale community textiles initiatives
  • Support for the arts
  • Support for projects which seek to strengthen rural communities in Wales, especially in Mid Wales


If you wish to submit a proposal for your own clarification please take a look at 'How to Apply'.

Due to the economic downturn we are receiving an unprecedented increase in requests. We are therefore changing our long held policy of replying to all requests. If you have submitted a stage one proposal and have not heard within eight weeks please assume you have been unsuccessful.

Unsolicited requests, which sit outside of our criteria, will regrettably not be answered.
