The Elephant & Castle Community Fund is opening for 2021-22 applications.

With the ongoing regeneration of the Elephant and Castle area*, the Fund aims to build on the strengths of local people, celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the area, and support the people who are most at need in a time of change.

The Fund is supported by donations from Southwark Council and Lendlease.

Grants of between £500 and £10,000 are available for projects that support residents of the Elephant and Castle Opportunity Area (see map below). Applications must address at least one of the following themes:

  1. Further Education, Skill Building, Training and Entrepreneurship
  2. Arts and Culture
  3. Environment
  4. Young People
  5. Wellbeing

 Community Southwark is hosting a workshop to help those interested in applying to Fund. This workshop will cover:

  • the criteria and eligibility for the fund
  • how to apply
  • some application do's and don'ts
  • a chance to discuss your funding idea

If you have any questions ahead of the session, please contact [email protected]
