Heathrow Community Fund: making a difference 

Crowd cheering boys performing acrobatics.

Heathrow Community Fund is an independent charity which receives funding from Heathrow Airport Limited, noise fines levied on airlines when they break the noise regulations, and other funders, as well as funding from Heathrow staff via their fundraising activities. Through our grant programme, we support significant and positive improvement in quality of life for communities near the airport. We also support airport staff volunteering and fundraising to improve their community or for a cause they believe in.

Registered charity number 1058617
