Philanthropy is a core activity of the Worshipful Company of Wheelwrights, as is shown by the support of its members for education and the Wheelwrights Charity.

Educational activities are focused on support for Burnt Mill Academy and the Wheelwrights Apprenticeship scheme.

The Charitable activities are structured around grants from the Wheelwrights Charity, which include grants for education and training; mobility for disabled people; access to sport, educational and recreational activities for disabled people; and City of London charities and causes, including the Lord Mayor’s chosen charities each year.

The company also sponsors a number of prizes and awards, including the Geoffrey Udall Prize for Paediatric Medicine, the Master Wheelwrights Award, and several military prizes and awards.
