We support a range of work to support groups of Londoners who face sustained and systemic disadvantage. For example, we support work to improve the lives of disabled people and those groups who may struggle to find employment.
We also fund work to improve society for all Londoners for example through our funding for a joint initiative on social integration which we are running in conjunction with the Mayor of London.
