London Community Response - emergency funding available now
London’s funders are working together to provide coordinated funding to support groups responding to the needs of communities affected by the covid-19 pandemic.
Wave 2 is now open: there are two funding programmes that are now taking applications:
- 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. In some circumstances we may consider grants above £50,000 but there must be a strong rationale in your application for this.
If you applied in wave 1 (food and essentials) you can re-apply in this wave as well.
Future funding programmes may include longer-term and recovery costs.
