60 second overview
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.

This week is London Challenge Poverty week, a chance for people to speak out about poverty across the capital. We will be tweeting about the reality of poverty in London throughout the week, and what we we must do as a society to solve it. #LDNChallengePoverty @4in1015 Oct 2018
58% of Londoners in poverty are from a working family. The changing face of poverty must be met by a new approach from government. We need housing costs to be controlled, and more employers to pay the real living wage. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/poverty-moved-dole-queue-workplace-13441046 …19 Oct 2018
"It's incredibly disempowering to not understand how your benefits work, or how much money you are entitled to from each payment." Good discussion from the floor at our event about #UniversalCredit with @LCPAlliance @policy_practice @MindCharity @CPAGUK #LDNChallengePoverty19 Oct 2018
#UniversalCredit can be very difficult to manage for people with mental health problems. @MindCharity are pushing for people's other benefits not to be taken away until they receive their first payment under Universal Credit. #LDNChallengePoverty19 Oct 2018
People affected by the benefit cap are more likely to move into work than before the cap began. But for every 1 child in a family which gains work, there are 5 who get less welfare because of the cap. Devan & @policy_practice say this is a poor trade-off. #LDNChallengePoverty pic.twitter.com/cyxwITuZzW19 Oct 2018
