Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) - A message from our Chair


Firstly, I do hope this finds you, your family, the staff you work with and the people you support, safe and in good health.

Secondly, I would like to reassure you that the Foundation is OPEN. All of our staff are fully set up with computers at home, so you can email your fund manager as normal. We are also monitoring our post, and our office phoneline is still manned so we can pass messages on to your usual Fund Manager or contact, should email or post not be sufficient. They in turn can arrange direct phone calls and virtual meetings via Zoom, Skype etc as appropriate, but will not be holding any face-to- face meetings.

Thirdly, I would also like to reassure all our grant holders that we will continue to support you as flexibly as possible to help you deal with this unprecedented crisis. We understand the very real impact that Covid-19 may be having on your work. Please talk to your Fund Manager about any difficulties you are facing, and how we can help you deal with and manage these challenges. As I said, we hope to be as flexible and supportive as possible.

Wishing everyone safe and healthy passage through these most difficult times.

Kind regards,

Heather Stevens
Chair of Trustees

Welcome to the Waterloo Foundation (TWF)

The Waterloo Foundation (TWF) is an independent grant-making Foundation. We are most interested in projects that help globally, with particular focus on the disparity of opportunities, wealth and the unsustainable use of the world’s natural resources. To that end, our main programmes support:


World Development – supporting people and communities to build the basis of sustainable prosperity within developing countries, through their access to sexual and reproductive health services, excellent nutrition, high-quality education and clean water, sanitation and hygiene systems.


Environment - support for projects which counter damage to the environment, especially human-caused effects, through increasing marine fish stocks and protecting tropical rain forests.


Child Development –support for research, knowledge dissemination, and small Wales-based intervention projects about certain child development conditions.


Wales – support for organisations working in Wales which provide support for unpaid carers, increase employment opportunities or address educational inequality.
