Tell us what you think

We want to hear your views on what are the most important areas to focus our charitable funding on in the future. We take your views very seriously and they will help to shape the future of Greenham Common Trust.

Welcome to Greenham Common Trust, Newbury

Greenham Common Trust works in close partnership with the local community providing financial support for charitable projects and purposes in West Berkshire and the northern edges of North Hampshire.

Since its establishment in 1997 Greenham Common Trust has so far distributed over £22.5 million of grants and financial awards to organisations and projects through its programme of bi-annual awards.

Chief executive Chris Boulton says: “We embrace the idea of creating innovative solutions for the voluntary sector and local community and encourage charities to work closely in partnership with local authorities and the private sector to maximise the benefit to the local community.”

The Trust is able to do all of this thanks to the investment in its main asset and trading subsidiary, Greenham Business Park - a 150-acre business park on the site of the former Greenham Common airbase. Click here to visit the Park
