Trust for London is the largest independent charitable foundation funding work which tackles poverty and inequality in the capital. We support work providing greater insights into the root causes of London's social problems and how they can be overcome; activities which help people improve their lives; and work empowering Londoners to influence and change policy, practice and public attitudes.
We are particularly interested in work that is viewed as challenging and we are willing to take risks. One of our longstanding principles is to support activities that Government is unlikely to fund. We also want to make sure that we are able to respond to new issues and ideas and find creative ways of tackling deep-rooted problems relating to poverty and inequality.
Annually we provide around £7 million in grants and at any one point we are supporting some 400 voluntary and community organisations. Established in 1891, we were formerly known as City Parochial Foundation.
The booklet below tells you more about who we are and what we do. This can also be downloaded as a pdf
You can also read our latest Annual Review, which provides an overview of our work.
