Trust for London Strategic Plan
This Strategic Plan for the five years from January 2018 to December 2022 relates to the Trust for London's aims and objectives in relation to the Central Fund.
We are a charitable organisation that exists to reduce poverty and inequality in London. We do this by funding the voluntary and community sector and others, as well as by using our own expertise and knowledge to support work that tackles poverty and its root causes.
