Working with local communities


The Communities Trust is a grant making charity set up to support and strengthen local communities close to the airports at Aberdeen, Glasgow, Heathrow and Southampton.

Our aim is to help them create significant and positive social change.

Established in 1996, we have a particular focus on funding projects in the areas of education, the environment and economic regeneration.

So far in 2013 we have:

  • Donated nearly £700,000
  • Awarded more than 160 grants
  • Donated more than £55,000 in support of staff fundraising.

We work closely with the communities to try and make sure that our grants go where they are most needed – there is a dedicated local community fund and a local grants panel at each airport to support Trustees with their decisions about the donations we make.

We also help airport staff with grants to support their volunteering and fundraising activity.

Check out our local airport community funds at Aberdeen, Glasgow, Heathrow, and Southampton.
