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. We have seven funding programmes for 2018-2022, details of which can be found in our funding guidelines.
