Our Story

Westham House was originally a large residential education centre in Warwickshire offering a wide variety of non-vocational courses for adults. Following its closure in 1997 and subsequent sale, the proceeds were used to set up The Westham House Fund (WHF) with the aim of promoting of Adult Education in the United Kingdom and, in particular, the County of Warwickshire. The Westham House Fund is a Registered Charity (700637).

Since its inception, WHF has awarded grants to many organisations who offer non-vocational education opportunities for adults, successfully assisting these organisations to provide valuable services in local communities. Over recent years, we have expanded our remit to encompass support for activities which enhance the well-being of adults.

In 2019 we introduced the Young Person's Fellowship. This allows us to give support directly to individuals aged 16-25 to enable them to take part in non-vocational experiences that will expand their educational horizons.

Our small Board of Trustees is passionate about supporting non-vocational adult education and well-being activities for groups and individuals.
