Funding for communities near Heathrow

Heathrow Community Trust’s vision is to enable local projects which create healthy, happy communities.  Our Board of Trustees and volunteer Grant Review Panel members live and work locally.  They are supported by the CEO and a team at Groundwork South, who draw on their local knowledge and experience to enable community groups to submit strong applications which detail the value of your work. To inform our funding priorities, we carry out an annual survey of community groups across the local area.
