1667-2017: 350 years of Mr Walcot's gift to the people of Lambeth
2017 marks 350 years since Edmund Walcot's Will established our principal charity
How we are marking the anniversary
Welcome. We are an independent grant-making foundation with roots from the 17th century. Our work is to break cycles of financial deprivation for people living in Lambeth. We offer a hand up, not a hand out, and seek to tackle poverty by creating opportunity. Over the ten years to March 2017 we made grants amounting to almost £19 million: 2,189 grants to individuals and 1,434 grants to organisations and schools.
By changing individual Lambeth lives we're helping build Lambeth's social capital and economic growth, reducing inequality and helping nurture our borough's rich and varied communities.
