Chalkhill Community Trust Fund

Chalkhill Community Trust Fund

The Chalkhill Community Trust Fund (CCTF) is an active independent grant making charity which aims to improve the well-being and quality of life of residents of Chalkhill Estate and surrounding areas in Brent. It has a fund Chalkhill Community Trust Fundof around £1.4m and is governed by a Trustee Board which meets quarterly.


The Chalkhill Community Trust Fund (CCTF), constituted in 2000,  has its origins in the successful regeneration of the Chalkhill area of Wembley, North London. It is the result of joint working between public agencies, the developers and the local community.

The Trust Fund originated  from  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.

CCTF 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.
