Westway Community Transport (WCT) has launched a new Innovation Fund. Groups providing community based activities are invited to apply for funds of up to £5,000 for transport costs. Open to charities and community groups in Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster.

The funding can be used to offset driver and/or vehicle and fuel costs (provided by WCT only) and must be used during 2016. The Fund is also open to existing WCT member organisations who would like help with transport costs for a new activity, or for a new emerging group wishing to carry out activities needing transport. Westway CT have set aside £20,000 this year for this purpose.

The funded transport provision will be available between 10 am and 3pm, or after 6pm Monday to Friday, or anytime at the weekends.

While applications are open to all community and charitable organisations Westway CT would particularly welcome applications from organisations working with young people.

The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation are managing the application process.  For more information, and to download an application form visit the WCT website.

Completed applications must be returned to The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation by 12pm on Wednesday December 23rd 2015.  Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 29th January 2016.
