Funding available

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and the success of our Covid-19 appeal, we have funding available for organisations supporting local people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

To make this as simple as possible, we have joined a collaboration of London-wide funders and are making this funding available through the London Community Response Fund. This means there is just one single application process for charities and community groups to apply to multiple funders in a fast and efficient way.

The fund is now open for applications and organisations can apply for either:

  • Crisis response – grants of up to £10,000 to enable you to meet the immediate needs of communities, from food and essentials, to equipment and additional short-term staff costs;
  • Delivering differently – grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 to enable you to change the way you deliver your work to ensure it continues to meet the needs of your communities, from switching to digital channels to redeploying staff to boost your capacity at a time of increased demand.
