We are jointly hosting a workshop with the Greater London Authority for two new funds aimed at supporting communities across London.
We are delighted to be welcoming the Greater London Authority to jointly host a funding workshop for two funds aimed at supporting community-led projects across London. Find out more about the funds and how you can get involved. Round 2 is now open for applications.
Untold Stories is a £1m funding programme to support community-led organisations make a change in their public spaces. It is part of the Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm, one of the Mayor’s flagship commitments to cementing London’s reputation as a diverse, global city.
Community-led organisations are invited to apply for grants to help develop and deliver projects that increase diversity in London’s public spaces. Whether this is creating something new, highlighting something missing or hidden, or presenting a different story to what already exists. More information on Untold Stories here.
Building Stronger Communities
The Mayor of London is offering funding for London equity-led voluntary and community sector organisations to enable communities to shape their recovery from COVID-19, through community-led projects that help to meet at least one of the following outcomes:
Londoners are supported to shape their communities post COVID-19, such as meeting new or pre-existing needs that have emerged or been highlighted by the pandemic, to develop community activities and services.
Unheard voices are amplified and heard so that communities have influence and control over decisions, e.g. people from communities who are under-represented in decision making have opportunities to have their voices heard and shape change.
Feelings of belonging are increased; loneliness and social isolation are decreased.
Feelings of connection within and across communities are increased, such as relationships are strengthened between neighbours and communities.
These outcomes are related to the Building Strong Communities Mission work. You can visit the Building Stronger Communities page to find out more.
