Rainbow Project

Rainbow Project logoSince its launch in autumn 2008 the Rainbow Project has provided Hounslow Homes’ residents with the opportunity to bid for grants of up to £100,000 to improve their community and local environment. Over the three years of the project over £1.4 million will be provided to successful resident-led projects.

There has been huge interest in the Rainbow Project with more than 50 groups applying for grants and to date we have provided funding for 26 different projects across the borough. These have included:

  • Provision of new community facilities on the Brabazon Estate and in the Lavender Court sheltered scheme
  • Refurbishment of community buildings or facilities on the Heston Farm, Haverfield, Convent Way, Syon and Edensor Gardens estates and in Harnage House sheltered scheme
  • Play projects and activities for young people on the following estates: Wateloo, Highfields, Haverfield, Edensor Gardens, Alexander Gardens, Staveley Gardens, Convent Way and Oriel
