Heathrow Community Fund: making a difference

Heathrow Community Fund is part of the independently run grant-making charity LHR Airport Communities Trust, which receives funding from Heathrow Airport Limited, noise fines and other funders, as well as funding from Heathrow staff via their fundraising activities. Through our grant programme, we support significant and positive change for communities near the airport. We also support airport staff volunteering and fundraising to improve their community or for a cause they believe in.
