The London Community Response Fund Wave 1 is open for applications now. There will be a Wave 2 and possibly Wave 3 thereafter.
Wave 1 is for small grants of £5,000 for essentials such as food and essential supplies, and aimed at charities helping Londoners with coping with shielding and self-isolation.
There is a rolling deadline of every Friday starting this Friday 3 April and applications will be assessed the following week after each Friday deadline. Costs incurred from March 23 onwards are eligible.
Groups unsuccessful at the first deadline will be re-submitted for a 2nd chance.
Applying now for the small grant for essentials does not exclude you from applying in Wave 2 or beyond. Visit the website for more details, guidance and application process, and sign up for updates as new funding becomes available.
