Enabling local charities
We're an independent funder based in Southwark distributing around £200,000 a year in grants in Lambeth and Southwark.
We make unrestricted grants of up to £30,000 a year for up to three years to local, inspiring charities based in Lambeth and Southwark with annual turnovers of between £25,000 and £300,000.
We fund charities that are rooted in their communities and bring communities together, helping residents overcome severe and multiple challenges. We want local charities to increase their resilience so they can continue to help residents overcome these challenges and be active in these communities.
We get to know local charities and trust the charities to know how to use the grant.
We work with other local funders and organisations to strengthen the voluntary sector in Lambeth and Southwark.
We know there are larger charities we no longer fund - find out more about why we're now working with smaller charities here.
We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in how we run ourselves, make grants and work with partners. We have strengthened and diversified our board, we offer unrestricted grants and made our application processes simpler and more transparent, and last year we worked with other funders in Southwark and Lambeth to respond as quickly as we could to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are on a journey and are committed to listening to, and learning from, communities, particularly from those experiencing discrimination through an intersection of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or socio-economic background, and we endeavour to share our learnings with the wider funding sector.
