Chalkhill Community Trust FundBackground

[available as PDF download]

The Chalkhill Community Trust Fund (the Trust Fund) has its origins in the successful regeneration of Chalkhill. It is the result of joint working between public agencies, the developers and the local community.

The Trust Fund was possible initially because of the considerable funds released by the sale of land to ASDA. This money was later supplemented by additional funds from the sale of a training centre initially used during the physical rebuilding of the area.

The Trust Fund is actively managed by the Trustees who are comprised of representatives from Metropolitan, Brent Council, the local community and local residents. Olmec supports the administration of the Trust Fund by providing the secretariat.
