Funding and community partnerships

For Heathrow, being a responsible neighbour is a priority. It is important that we share the benefits of the airport with the communities, families, and organisations that live or operate locally. By investing in our local community we can help to make sure the area around Heathrow is a great place to live. This includes funding local projects and supporting causes that have a social impact. 

Heathrow Community Trust

Heathrow Community Trust (HCT) is the airport’s independent, primary charity partner. HCT has been an integral part of the local community for over 25 years, supporting a range of projects and organisations across nine local boroughs surrounding the airport.
