Micro grants to empower local communities
We believe that challenges in our local communities can be solved when individuals with bright ideas, who live and work in these communities every day, are given the right opportunities and resources.
Our vision is to create vibrant, inclusive and engaged communities that people are proud to live and work in. To achieve this, we provide grants and support for individuals to develop impactful solutions based on the needs of their local community.
The Collective Grants programme works with local charities, community groups, authorities and individuals to identify the most pressing issues in different neighbourhoods, across our focus areas: Economic Opportunity, Social Integration, Health and Wellbeing and Environmental Sustainability.
Local organisations and individuals can apply for a grant up to £3,000 to realise an initiative that positively benefits the community by addressing issues in our focus areas that our research shows to be the most pressing.
Building connected communities
We support companies that make communities more socially inclusive, and enhance a sense of belonging.
We support companies that empower those who are disadvantaged by our existing systems, and help to develop their skills.
We support companies that focus on behavioural change to create more sustainable communities.
We support companies that make communities healthier, specifically by helping people to improve and maintain their mental health.
Workshops for mental wellbeing
We are partnering with Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind to deliver three creative and wellbeing workshops. The 3-hour workshops focus on the Five Ways to Wellbeing and offer simple tips for people to improve and self-manage their emotional health and wellbeing.
