Council grants, funding and commissioning

Council grants

Supporting Hounslow's communities

Grants are available for charities, voluntary and community groups and places of worship from Hounslow Council's Thriving Communities Fund.

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic our voluntary and community groups provided a vital lifeline for many of our residents. Thousands of volunteers have come forward to help others and their commitment and determination to support our most vulnerable residents has been inspiring.
Our voluntary sector has proven to be robust and resilient, with a remarkable ability to adapt to the changing circumstances and to continue operating, whatever obstacles they have had to overcome.
The Council is committed to supporting them as we all work together to implement our ambitious and innovative Plan for Recovery

Our Thriving Communities Fund Managers are available to answer your questions about applying for any of these grants.
Please contact them by emailing: community.development@hounslow.gov.uk
