£56m distributed by the London Community Response so far

Applications for the London Community Response are currently closed.

Applications have now closed for the latest wave of funding for London's civil society through the London Community Response.

Funders have come together to provide an extra £10m to the capital's voluntary sector through crisis grants to respond to urgent needs, and 'Renewal' grants supporting three “missions” for the future beyond covid-19 – building strong communities, a new deal for young people, and ensuring a robust safety net. In total the London Community Response has given £56m to projects in every London borough. 

London Funders and its members are looking ahead to renewal and recovery. Funders have heard clearly that the sector needs reassurance that longer-term funding is coming, as well as support with emergency funds. To this end, London Funders is building on the 'We Stand With the Sector' statement by working with IVAR and over 50 funders on a campaign to build more open and trusting practices.
