The next deadline for grant application is 1pm, 5th October 2017. Successful grants from this round will go to the February 2018 Grants Committee.

These guidelines took over a year to develop. We did research on what funding was already available, held consultation sessions and had many individual conversations. It is those people working on the ground who know what communities really need and by listening to those needs, we hope that our commitment to provide nearly £40m of funding over the next five years will make a real difference to the lives of Londoners. At a time when many things are changing and new opportunities and challenges present themselves, Trusts and Foundations have an important role to play in providing stability for civil society organisations. We will play our part in that. We look forward to receiving our first applications under these new guidelines.
