The fund has been set up by Barratt Metropolitan LLP (BMLLP) to encourage and support the delivery of community projects and causes at West Hendon over the coming years.
Projects can range from youth activities to education and training and to career advice. Any community group, tenant group or business in the area can apply for funding.
BMLLP has recently paid £50,000 into the Trust and this is available to the community now. A further £200,000 will be made available on completion of Phase 3C.
The fund is managed by a group of trustees – members of the local community and representatives of the development partners. They will consider each community application and decide which ones to support.
BMLLP is looking for two local residents to volunteer as trustees of the fund. The trustees’ role is to help shape the delivery of projects and decide as a group how the fund is managed and invested. They would also help to look for other sources of funding.
Anyone who is interested in becoming a Trustee to make a difference and help their community is encouraged to contact Reshmun Nehar:
