The Trust made a grant of £4,000 for a drop in session for elderly people in Yiewsley to provide IT training and physical exercise programmes to improve independence. As a result of the grant, the more isolated members of the community make new friendships and gain information that they might not otherwise be able to access.
Small grants up to £7,500 2008-2009
A £5,000 grant from Hillingdon Community Trust to the QPR Kickz project provided portable floodlights for the winter. The project engages with 100 young people from the Trust’s area and aims to involve young people in positive, constructive activities, create exit routes into education, training and employment, break down barriers between police and young people, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities, encourage volunteering and increase young people’s interest in the game.
