Welcome to
The Hampstead Wells
and Campden Trust

The principal objectives of The Hampstead Wells and Campden Trust are the alleviation of poverty and the advancement of health in the Trust’s area of benefit.

We make grants to organisations, individuals and families. In addition, approximately 100 older people receive regular pension awards from the Trust.

June 2020: The Trust has established an Emergency Fund available for small projects to help the most vulnerable in our area of benefit during the current crisis. So far, this fund has been supporting emergency food and education packages to families and individuals in their homes. We appreciate that organisations are very busy and do not necessarily have the time and resources to complete lengthy application forms. Therefore, if your organisation is interested in receiving a grant of up to a maximum of £2,000, please email our grants officer on Joanna@hwct.co.uk, detailing your organisation's current need, services provided and what any grant would be used for.  We aim to process such applications swiftly.

 

The Trust provides for grants to be made

  • To help persons who are sick, convalescent, disabled or infirm
  • To help either generally or individually, persons who are in need and who suffer hardship or distress
  • To assist organisations or institutions providing services or facilities which help relieve need or distress

Grants to individuals can only be made to residents in our area of benefit which covers parts of North and West Camden. A temporary stay in the area, or a hospital stay is not sufficient.  Organisations serving a wider area, but whose activities can be shown to benefit residents in our area of benefit, among others, may also apply for help.

Current areas of high priority for the Trust are debt, homelessness and mental health.
