Chalkhill Community Trust Fund (CCTF) is a registered Charity (Charity No. 1085890) established in 2000 to serve the Chalkhill Community. CCTF 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 Charity was possible because of the considerable funds released by the sale of land to ASDA. This fund has been managed by a Board of Trustees, which includes two community representatives. CCTF serves the community by funding projects that enhance the social, sporting, welfare, health or educational wellbeing of Chalkhill residents. CCTF also manages a Welfare Fund for individuals requiring urgent or unexpected financial support which they are unable to access elsewhere.
The Charity’s objects are:
- To provide or assist in the provision of facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation in the interest of social welfare and with the object of improving the conditions of life for the residents of Chalkhill including especially persons who by youth, age, infirmity, disability, poverty or social economic circumstance may have need for such facilities.
