Our Work and Focus
We exist exclusively for the benefit of Lambeth individuals from low-income households. Our grants to organisations and schools are solely a means of reaching those individuals.
How to Apply
Organisation and School Grant Applications
To apply, please read the guidance for work in schools OR guidance for organisations working in the community then, once a round opens (see dates below), contact a member of our Grants Team on 020 7735 1925 to discuss your proposal (i.e. a verbal expression of interest). When you call, it is helpful if you are able to verbally give us a brief outline project plan, with an estimate of how much it will cost, how many individuals it will support and what you hope it will achieve.
Please note - we only consider funding for school-based projects in one round prior to the start of each academic year. We approved all our funding for school-based projects for academic year 2021/22 in the May/June 2021 funding round. The school round for 2022/23 academic year will open for expressions of interest on 25 January 2022.
If your proposal fits our criteria and priorities we will email you an application form. You will typically have four weeks to complete the application form. You will be notified of the grant decision within three days of the relevant Grant Decision date below.
Please note, if your grant application is unsuccessful, you will need to wait 12 months from when you initially applied before you can apply again. If you are unhappy with the service given by the Grants Team or the decision made, please refer to our Complaints Procedure.
For reference, the Standard Grant Conditions made to successful grantees can be found on our website. Additional project/organisation-specific conditions may be added as necessary .
