The Trust for London is a charitable organisation that aims to reduce poverty and inequality in London by funding and supporting work that tackles poverty and its root causes.
The Trust’s grant programme supports projects which address poverty and inequality and help people improve their lives, and for work that empowers local people to influence and change policy, practice and public attitudes.
The Trust has identified the following seven priority funding areas for 2018-2022:
- Good Homes and Neighbourhoods
- Better Work
- Decent Living Standards
- Shared Wealth
- Pathways to Settlement
- Stronger Voices
- Connected Communities
Applications are invited from organisations in the voluntary and community sector and universities or other research organisations. The maximum value for each grant is £150,000 although generally the average grant value is £80,000, which can be paid over one to three years. Grants may be used for salaries, small capital items and project running costs.
There are three application deadlines per year and the next deadline is June 2018 (1pm).
