The new Advice in Community Settings grant programme will fund advice partnerships to respond to the needs of the local community.

Londoners deserve a trusted, local place to go when they need advice on their rights and entitlements. The Advice in Community Settings programme will fund advice partnerships to support Londoners experiencing, or at risk of, financial hardship.

Schools, food distribution hubs and advice organisations have been working together through the pandemic to support our communities. This programme will encourage and enable these organisations to work collaboratively to provide Londoners with the support they need to boost their incomes and reduce their outgoings. 

About the programme

The Advice in Community Settings programme has two stages:

  • Stage 1: Support partnerships between community settings and providers of advice. Between £5,000 and £7,500 is available for each partnership. 
  • Stage 2: Fund these partnerships to deliver targeted interventions to help families or individuals on low or no incomes to access advice and support.
