Brentford venue beneficiary of nationwide scheme
Brentford’s Watermans art centre has been awarded National Lottery funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.
Almost £100 million of vital funding has gone to communities across England over the last three months supporting local and grassroots projects.
The substantial investment has been awarded to more than 3,000 community groups and projects across the country, enabling them to bring people together and provide the tools and support they need to better prosper and thrive.
Grants awarded range from £300 up to £1.7million and have been made in direct response to community needs, including employability, mental health, supporting young people and building connections to tackle loneliness.
Watermans have not revealed the amount which they have been awarded.
