What we fund

We fund 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.

The work of Trust for London is not limited to making grants. We also use our resources to tackle poverty and inequality in other ways.

Please note we do not fund individuals.
