In addition to an increased number of grants to individuals and families in our area of benefit, the Trust have recently been able to provide some Small Organisational Grants (under £2,000) to local organisations helping people. These have included: 

  • £900 towards Hampstead Community Centre’s annual Christmas Lunch which this year was delivered to peoples’ homes by volunteers 
  • £2,000 towards IT equipment for homeless men at Conway House to enable them to search effectively for work and take training opportunities as needed. 
  • £2,000 for Feast with us to help provide cooked food to vulnerable people in hostels and community kitchens in NW3 and NW6 

We were also able to support a small number of hostels in our AOB over the Christmas period with emergency grants totalling £5,000 for their residents who were struggling to meet their basic needs.  

Larger grants of up to £10,000 are now being considered for our committee meeting on 8th April 2021. Deadline for applications are 25th February. Please get in touch with our grants officer if you would like to discuss a potential application: joanna@hwct.co.uk
