A new fund totalling £300,000 has been set up to provide grants to small charities, community organisations and residents’ groups in West Ealing

A2Dominion’s Partnership and Fundraising team has joined forces with Clarion Futures, the charitable arm of Clarion Housing Group, to launch the West Ealing Grants Programme; a three-year project offering financial support in the area.

Qualifying organisations will be able to apply for small grants of up to £5,000, from a total fund of £300,000.

The aim of the programme is to promote and support applications through active engagement with local networks and voluntary organisations. A2Dominion’s Partnership and Fundraising team, in collaboration with Clarion Futures, will provide support for all submissions.

Applications for the first round of grants will remain open until Wednesday, 23 June. All applications will then be assessed and grants will be awarded in the week commencing 26 July.

Dawn Wightman, Director of Housing, A2Dominion, said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for any local community or charitable group based in Ealing to get some financial support, as well as help with writing grant applications more generally. I’m pleased that we’ve been able to work with our partners at Clarion Futures to deliver a programme that will boost a significant number of good causes throughout the borough.”

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
