About the England and Wales Cricket Trust

The Inspired to Play Grant Scheme is funded by the England and Wales Cricket Trust (EWCT).

The EWCT supports community participation in cricket as a means of promoting and improving health, which is a charitable purpose.

In addition, the EWCT promotes work to improve provision of cricket in schools, clubs and other youth cricket activities. Activities funded by the EWCT must benefit the wider community, not just a small group or elite. This is a primary obligation of an applicant when applying for the funds provided by EWCT.
