Now in its fourth year, the Community Contribution Fund was created to give Westminster residents the opportunity to give more to their local community, on a voluntary basis. The scheme is managed by the City of Westminster Charitable Trust.
The Community Contribution Fund has re-opened for grant awards for the fourth time in January 2021. These grants are to help increase opportunities for young people, help lonely people feel less isolated and provide extra support for people who find themselves sleeping on Westminster's streets.
Our mission is to give everyone a stake in the community and neighbourhoods that make up the City of Westminster.
We were founded in 1986 on the 400th anniversary of the City of Westminster. The trust was established to invest in Westminster and support local projects which matter to residents. The trust is a registered charity (Charity no. 296091).
We currently provide grants to community groups working in Westminster from the Lord Mayor’s Fund and the Community Contribution Fund. The Lord Mayor’s Fund supports the Lord Mayor’s charities.
The Community Contribution Fund will support community projects that create opportunities for young people in Westminster, help lonely and isolated people in Westminster, and help rough sleepers off the streets at night.
