Latest grants help children and young people in Hammersmith - October 4, 2012
10 new grants were agreed at the October grants committee meeting. The focus on young people, children and families was very strong and the grants have included awards to the White City Clock Club for new play equipment; the Cyrenians to provide an employment support worker for the young people living in their supported accommodation; to the Lyric to enable a primary school to take part in one of its creative education programmes; and to Old Oak Community Centre to enable them to provide a programme of free after school activities for children living on that estate.
We congratulate all the successful applicants. The quality of applications was high and reflected the range of needs in our Area of Benefit. Although we receive more applications than we can fund, we are keen to encourage more voluntary and community groups working in our Area of Benefit to get in touch to see if we can work together. Trustees meet quarterly to consider applications and we are always keen to talk about possible projects informally.
