    COVID Relief Grant

    We recognise the importance of locally-owned small businesses and community organisations to North Kensington. When local organisations thrive, our community thrives. The past 18 months have been difficult for everyone, but our local small businesses have been hit particularly hard. This is especially true for market traders and retailers who rely on passing traffic and footfall.  As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, we want to do what we can to support locally-owned small businesses and not for profit organisations to get back on their feet. This small grants programme is designed for organisations who make a real contribution to our local community.  In particular, we want to support businesses and other organisations who: Have a vision and plan to grow their business/service over the coming 3-5 years Have innovated, adapted and/or reached new markets during the pandemic Make a real contribution to the local community To be eligible you must: Be a registered business, charity or registered Community Interest Company (CIC) or a community group with a written constitution or governing document (i.e. articles of association).

    Fundraising Support

    One of the most impactful ways we can support community organisations and groups is to provide professional support in attracting external funding for their projects. We would like to provide professional support in seeking external funding for organisations whose objectives align with Westway Trust's charitable purpose. A fundraising pipeline calendar has been produced which identifies funding opportunities throughout the year. If your organisation is interested in applying for one of these funds but requires professional support in building your funding application, please complete our expression of interest form. A member of our team will review your expression of interest and triage your request to one of our professional fundraising support agencies for further discussion. Eligibility  We will support local social enterprises, and charitable, voluntary and community organisations based in the 5 wards of North Kensington (Golborne, Colville, Notting Dale, St Helens and Dalgarno). Organisations must demonstrate a particular focus on the communities living in North Kensington, in and around the Westway. The aim of the fundraising support fund is to partner community organisations, whose objectives align with Westway Trust’s charitable purpose, with fundraising consultants who will work with the organisation to attract external funding. We will focus on investing in organisations who are looking to address at least one of the six key priority areas for the Trust, which were recently identified by social researchers Hatch Regeneris. These are: i. Isolation ii. Safe places for young people iii. Economic participation iv. Creative economy, arts and culture v. Place and environment vi. Exercise & Recreation Whether you are seeking support in fundraising for core costs or have a specific project in mind either the organisation or the project must meet at least one of the above criteria The total amount available for this initiative is £10,000. In the current funding climate, we are aware that the call on this fund might exceed the resources available. In this case the Trust will keep, where appropriate, organisations expressions of interest and contact details should other funding become available. For more information on your eligibility for this programme, please read the programme guidelines. ...
