New funding from the London Community Response is launching on January 14 to support London’s civil society organisations through the third lockdown.


With the capital in another lockdown and our communities facing even more difficult times ahead, London’s funders have once again come together to provide new funding for civil society organisations. The London Community Response is launching two new waves of funding on Thursday 14 January.

There will be a crisis response programme of grants of up to £10k - with a quick turnaround to ensure that urgent needs are met. And there will also be a programme of larger, longer-term 'Renewal' grants which will focus on supporting the needs of civil society in the year ahead. Full guidance for applicants on both strands will be published next week.

To help you find out more about this funding, including what the priorities are for this programme and how the application process works, London Funders are hosting a webinar for London’s civil society groups on: 

Webinar for potential applicants - 13 January

As well as providing you with more information, the team will also be on hand to answer any questions that you may have.
