Team London Small GrantsArea: London

The Mayor of London recognises that small charities and community groups serve a critical role for all communities in London. Team London has therefore allocated £100,000 to distribute as small grants to community groups and other third sector organisations.

Since 2011, it has invested more than £550,000 and supported over 50 community groups and third sector organisations. The projects funded have helped tens of thousands of Londoners and created exciting new volunteering projects and campaigns.

In 2016/2017, it is investing a further £100,000 in London’s third sector. The focus of the grant round is to:

  • increase volunteering amongst 59-69-year-olds who are about to leave the workforce or have just left it. This volunteering will encourage them to use their skills for the benefit of the community. And/or:
  • increase the number of volunteers who support older people to access the community services and support that they need.

The small grants will provide a source of income for smaller organisations to meet local needs which may not meet the criteria for larger-scale funding.

The Team London Small Grants from £5,000 to £10,000 are for projects which should be completed by the end of March 2018.
