London Community Response Fund: Wave 4

London’s funders are working together to provide coordinated funding to support groups responding to the needs of communities in the capital affected by the covid-19 pandemic.

Before applying, please read the guidance document and FAQs.

Through this wave of funding there will be particular priority to support:

  • Equity and inclusion – organisations led by and for marginalised communities and those most affected by the covid-19 crisis (particularly Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME); Deaf and Disabled; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+); and/or women’s-led groups);
  • Strong connections – groups who have a strong reach to people at high risk of negative impacts from covid-19 (in terms of health outcomes, as well as social and economic issues); and/or
  • Smaller organisations – typically those with a turnover of up to £1m a year (though we welcome applications from grassroots and much smaller groups too)

Funding can be used for:

  • People – staffing and volunteer costs associated with delivering the work you are applying for;
  • Support – supervision and support for your team, including wellbeing and specialist support that ensures the resilience of staff and volunteers;
  • Equipment – any equipment you need to deliver this work that is not already in your budget;
  • Resources – any new software or training needed for your team to do their work;
  • Services – meeting the needs of the people you work for, including food and essentials, translation or interpreting services, or deep cleaning of accommodation;
  • Overheads – direct additional costs (e.g. for home working), together with a proportionate contribution to your organisational costs (including your governance costs);
  • Partnership – staff time, professional fees, or support needed to enable collaboration; and
  • Development – contributions to capacity building, infrastructure and organisational development.
