  • Heathrow Community Trust Covid19 Emergency Response

    During 2020 HCT awarded over £94,000.00 to 34 projects reaching a total of 27,607 beneficiaries. For more information about where the funds were awarded see this report.

    In parallel, we have contacted all our current grant holders to let them know that we will be as flexible as we can with current grants. We have flexed reporting dates and changed the use of grants so that the funds can be targeted to where they are most needed. Above all we have worked in partnership with our grant-holders to best support the local community through these challenging times.

    During August 2020 we opened up. The Covid19 Resilience Fund awarded up to £5000.00 unrestricted funding to support community organisations who are developing new services or changing the way they deliver services to support people as a result of the impact of Covid19 on our communities. In 2020, the fund awarded £96,005 to 33 different organisations in our area. To read more about what was funded see this report.

    We will continue to award emergency Covid support funding to help our local communities whenever sufficient funds become available, if you would like to make a donation to our Community Support Fund please use the button below.

    In 2021 the Covid resilience Fund is open to applications from organisations which have received funding in the period 2015-2020. There are two application deadlines 13 April 2021 and 1 September 2021.  For more information please download the guidance and apply here. In addition HCT will be running a new Hillingdon Covid19 Response Fund with the National Lottery Community Foundation in 2021, for more info see here.

    Across all activities, Heathrow Community Trust is committed to being as transparent as possible as a funder. This is why we joined the 360Giving initiative together with other funding bodies to publish our Covid19 Emergency and Resilience grants data.

    We have used the 360 giving data standard as a way of publishing our data, in due course we will extend this to publish data on all our grants programmes.
