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.
Changes in Response to Covid-19
In response to the Covid-19 Crisis, we have modified our usual grant processes. We are now managing the Lambeth Community Response Fund (a partnership of local funders and businesses) with an initial budget of £580,000 for C-19 related need in Lambeth.

Because of the need to be able to respond flexibly, we are currently awarding one-year grants for the time being. We hope to return to multi-year grants and our wider Governor Priorities from January 2021. We will review the situation in the autumn 2020. Visit our news pages for the latest information.
How to Apply
Organisation Grant Applications
We are considering grant applications that fit our priorities above from charities and social enterprises via the London Community Response website. Grants of up to £50,000 (for a maximum 6-month project) can be applied for and The Walcot Foundation will be prioritising those applications which focus wholly or substantially on supporting Lambeth residents and fit within our updated Covid-19 priorities. Joint funding projects with other funders will be considered where work is spread across a small number of other boroughs or for larger grant requests. Typically, Walcot Foundation will contribute up to £25,000 towards a project proposal.
Please note this grant round closed on 31 July and we are currently considering applications submitted for Wave 3.
School Grant Applications
We are currently closed for new school grant applications. We will reopen in late autumn/early 2021 for new expressions of interest. Please subscribe to our newsletter to keep updated.
Educational Field Trip Grants
Due to our current focus on supporting schools and organisations with issues exacerbated by the Covid-19 crisis, we are not accepting applications for Educational Field Trip grants for the 2020/21 academic year.
