Funding available for community projects

The Community Contribution Fund is a grant that has been voluntary donated by the residents in the highest value properties in Westminster. The scheme is managed by the City of Westminster Charitable Trust and more than £600,000 is now available. Eligible causes include projects that: 

  • Support people who find themselves sleeping rough on Westminster’s Streets
  • Help young people achieve their full potential
  • Help lonely people feel less isolated. 

Up to £30,000 is available for each applicant and those who qualify can see the application form and guidelines by clicking here.

The deadline for applications is 24th May 2019 and so please be quick if you want to apply (or recommend the fund to a Westminster-based project). 

Cllr Mark Shearer says “As a Council we are delighted to see the higher rate Council Tax properties contribute hundreds of thousands of pounds to initiatives that are core to the My Westminster values. We look forward to seeing the successful applicants making an impact within our City.”
