Community Trust

Who we are and what we do

The Aberdeen Airport Community Fund places priority on funding projects linked to education, the environment and economic regeneration – areas for which local people tell us they most value Trust support. Through our grants we aim:

  • To create learning opportunities for young people and so raise their aspirations
  • To break down barriers to employment through skills development
  • To help protect the environment
  • To support airport staff active in the community.

Organisations we have supported during 2017:

Logie Durno Parent Council
Belhelvie Community Council
Choices Aberdeen
Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust
Colony Park 2003’s
Mental Health Aberdeen
Rosehearty Community Boat Club
Upper Deeside Amateur Swimming Club
Camphill School
Home-start Aberdeen
Daviot Scout Camp
