With some £200,000 up for grabs, the normal level of grants awarded is between £1,000 - £5,000 to ensure the benefits are spread far and wide throughout the communities most affected by airport operations.
The Trust supports schemes that benefit diverse sections of the local community and are targeted towards the development of young people, the arts, sporting facilities, environmental improvement and conservation, improvements to community facilities, volunteering, the elderly and the disabled.
Grantapplications are assessed by a board of volunteer trustees who all bring local knowledge and expertise to the Trust ensuring that the money is used to the maximum benefit of the local community.
