Acton Gardens is committed to supporting the vibrant and thriving local community and has set aside a funding pot to support community activities throughout the lifetime of the regeneration.
Each year, £50,000 is made available for local groups to apply for, with up to £5,000 being offered per project. To date, we’ve funded nearly 100 projects, including gardening, sports, education, music, community days, support groups and arts projects.
Acton Gardens have set up a Community Chest sub group made up of residents to review applications and score projects, using a points system based on value for money, need for the project and the benefit offered for residents. Applications are considered by the sub group every quarter.
