Shepperton Studios Community Fund launches in Spelthorne

Shepperton Studios has launched a £500,000 community fund to support local individuals, non-profit and voluntary organisations including charities, social enterprises, and community groups.

Working together with independent local charity, the Community Foundation for Surrey (CFS), the Shepperton Studios Community Fund will be distributed over ten years and will benefit the Shepperton area and wider borough of Spelthorne. Areas of focus include:

Youth Development – initiatives that create opportunities for young people to develop their skills and support their long-term success particularly those designed to support initiatives in the fields of youth and community development with a focus upon education in and growth of screen based, media industries. For example, but not limited to, investing in facilities that will be used by young people, training programmes or summer school initiatives

Community Development – programmes that improve and strengthen the local community, including, but not limited to, the improvement of community facilities or community events as well as green initiatives aimed at reducing emissions and achieving net zero in the local area

Supporting under privileged and disadvantaged individuals and communities – the Commitment will seek to make a real difference to individuals and communities who would otherwise have no opportunity or other source of funding
