Hillingdon Community Trust is your local grant-making trust funding voluntary and community projects and activities in the Hillingdon wards of Botwell, Pinkwell, Townfield, Yiewsley, West Drayton and Heathrow Villages.
The Trust was established in 2003 and is a registered charity. Our main funding comes from Heathrow Airport Ltd which agreed, when permission was given for the building of Terminal 5, to provide £1m a year for 15 years to benefit the local community. The Trust was created to ensure that this sum was used effectively and to gain maximum impact for the community. At the end of our 14th year of operation, the Trust has approved grants of over £12m and so has made a major contribution to supporting the community.
The Trust’s area of benefit is defined in the deed of gift as the area shown on this map. Organisations applying do not necessarily have to be based in this area but the Trust is only able to fund projects that will benefit residents of the six wards shown.
