Wembley Park Community Fund Abundance Art Heart

Wembley Park Community Fund

The Wembley Park Community Fund, led by Quintain in partnership with The London Community Foundation, London Borough of Brent and key Wembley Park contractors John Sisk & Son, McLaren, Wates and McAleer & Rushe— provides grants and funding to local charities and voluntary groups of between £5,000 and £10,000. This year is the fourth year of the Fund which has provided £305,067 to 34 projects across Brent since its foundation in 2016. This year the Fund will align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals to deliver projects in priority areas of arts & culture, sport, reducing anti-social behaviour, tackling violent crime, and supporting vulnerable adults.

The aim of the Fund is to make a difference to the lives of residents in Wembley Park and the surrounding area by encouraging community engagement, participation and place-making through a variety of community-led activities.

This year the Fund’s alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals will seek to help a wide cross section of society with priority given to projects that:

  • Provide opportunities in the arts and culture
  • Create opportunities through sports
  • Reduce anti-social behaviour, the risk of harm and re-offending
  • Reduce violent crime, including gang and knife crime
  • Offer support for vulnerable adults, enabling them to remain independent and lead active lives

Applications are now open for the fourth year of the fund. The deadline for applications is midday on Monday 28th September 2020.

“This year has been particularly challenging for communities due to the devastating impact of Covid-19. I am proud that we are able to offer so many organisations in Brent meaningful support to ensure that even more local people will benefit from this Fund. This is just one of the ways we will continue to support the Brent community which has been such an integral part of the new creative neighbourhood we are delivering at Wembley Park.”
