Event Details

 Trust for London

Trust for London is the largest independent charitable trust funding work to reduce poverty and inequality in London. They do this by funding the voluntary and community sector and others, as well as by using their own expertise and knowledge to support work that tackles poverty and its root causes. Annually they provide around £7 million in grants to c.120 organisations.

Trust for London – Funding Workshop

Thursday 28th August

10am – 1pm

Trust for London's new funding priorities from 2014 cover five aims:

  1. Employment
  2. Advice
  3. Social Justice
  4. Violence
  5. Small Groups (income under £75,000)

Typical grants: £70,000 over 2 years (aims 1-4) or £20,000 over 2 years (Small Groups).

Next application deadline: Wednesday, 8th October 2014.

N.B. Hillingdon & Hounslow groups are underrepresented with this funder.

Trust for London support small community groups as they believe they are often well placed to identify needs and potential solutions. They fund groups that have an emphasis on user involvement and self-help; which empower people to advocate for themselves and which build stronger communities. They define small groups as those with an annual income of under £75,000.

Type of projects that the Trust will fund:

• Speaking out and campaigning activities - specifically work that empowers groups of people to speak out for themselves and to campaign for positive change.
• Advice and information work that supports disadvantaged communities to access mainstream services and/or provides solutions to their immediate needs. This work should provide good quality early advice, preventing problems becoming more serious, complex and costly; and should support and empower clients to resolve problems and take more control over their lives.
• Practical activities to improve local neighbourhoods – we will fund small-scale activities which bring different groups of people together to enhance their physical environment. This could include improving local green spaces; play areas; or road safety.

A sandwich lunch & networking from 12pm.

Workshop Presenter: Helal Uddin Abbas, Grants Manager, Trust for London
