We are particularly interested in projects which:
1. Improve parks green spaces within The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC), particularly around the Westway . Examples of improvements include: Planting or looking after trees and plants, growing food and encouraging natural habitats for wildlife.
2. Encourage residents to be active outdoors, to visit parks and green spaces and take part in healthy activities. Eligible initiatives include: The creation of, or improvement to, facilities which enable people to be active outdoors, special events, sporting and leisure activities, clean-up and gardening projects.
1. Places and spaces that people can enjoy that are greener and more attractive. Transforming un-loved pockets of the local area, or improving RBKC’s existing green spaces and natural environments.
2. Events or activities that encourage people to go out, be active, get fit and get involved in activities.
The Westway Trust is a registered charity and one of the first social enterprises in the UK. We were formed out of local protest in 1971, when the A40 Westway Flyover was built leaving 23 acres of derelict land. We manage and regenerate this land on behalf of the local community.
