A grant of £2,500 enabled free play opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The play sessions led to friendships between parents with the sessions becoming a meeting place where parents could have fun with their children and support each other. Many of the families attending were single parents, and with very low incomes find it hard to keep their children entertained so the clubs were especially valued.
Small grants up to £7,500 2009-2010
A respite care home in Hayes for children with disabilities received a grant of £5,000 from Hillingdon Community Trust to purchase specialist play equipment for young people with disabilities. The new play equipment partly financed by the Trust includes a special wheelchair swing and trim trail.
