The Birmingham Airport Community Trust Fund makes grants from £500 to £5,000 to small community-based organisations.

The website provides a list of postcodes that qualify and a comprehensive list of requirements that must be satisfied before an application can be accepted. Core funded directly by the Airport Company and topped-up by any penalties levied on airlines breaching our noise limits, grants are awarded by a board of independent Trustees representing local authorities and the Airport Consultative Committee.

Typically, the Trust Fund makes grants of around £100,000 each year and a total of over £1.8 million has been awarded to date.

The Community Trust Fund will support projects in any of the following four areas:

  1. Heritage Conservation.
  2. Environment improvement, improving awareness of environmental issues, environmental education and training, encouraging and protecting wildlife.
  3. Bringing the Community closer together through facilities for sport, recreation and other leisure time activities.
  4. Improving health and wellbeing through the promotion of healthy lifestyles and employment.
