We are committed to supporting local groups that provide valuable community services and the coach trip scheme offers a one-off contribution of up to £300 towards the cost of a coach or minibus for local groups to have an outing. In order to be eligible to apply, organisations:

  • must be based in H&F and be mostly made up of people living in the borough
  • should have a local management committee (of at least 3 members) and have their own governing document
  • must be able to show they support residents from all communities
  • should have an annual income of less than £10,000

Top priority will be given to older peoples’ groups which are currently not funded by the council. Groups run by statutory organisations – such as schools, the council, or NHS Trusts – are not eligible.
