What we fund

We fund work that looks to address the root causes of poverty and inequality in London. We want to support work that helps us better understand the systemic causes of London’s social problems; activities that help people improve their lives; and work empowering Londoners to influence and change policy, practice and public attitudes.

Please note we do not fund individuals.

If you would like to book an appointment to speak with one of our grant managers to discuss a potential application ahead of our next application deadline, the team would be happy to help. 30 minute slots are available to book throughout the year.
