Getting to Know Westfield’s Newest Community

In September 2011 Westfield Stratford City will open at the site of the London Olympic Games and the Group has been working in the local area for a number of years leading up to the project’s completion. 

As part of the commitment to getting to know the local community and lend it support, Westfield has provided grants of up to £1,000 to a number of local community organisations.

The grants are designed to support a diverse array of projects and individuals, and aim to make a significant difference to local neighbourhoods. Community members are invited to apply for grants via the Westfield Stratford City website.

In 2010 the program supported community groups that ranged from arts and theatre organisations to local environmental groups, social and recreational clubs, sporting clubs and training programs, to crime prevention initiatives and employment drives and educational associations. Over three years, the community grants scheme will have supported around 100 local grass-roots organisations providing tangible community benefits.
