£100,000 to tackle poverty and inequality in the capital

Helping London-based projects that benefit Londoners and their communities.

The Improving life for Londoners fund supports organisations based and working in London to deliver projects that address inequality and relieve poverty in the capital. 

Trust for London and City Bridge Trust have £100,000 available to organisations that have chosen to use crowdfunding to raise funds and bring to life projects which will benefit Londoners and their communities. 

The Improving Life for Londoners fund will tackle poverty in the city and unite communities by supporting projects that address local problems in creative ways. The fund will also support projects which address social issues by encouraging those on low incomes and their advocates to speak out. With the aim of delivering practical solutions to local issues, the fund will look to support projects led by the communities who will benefit from the work.

Projects could be eligible to receive up to 50% of the target, to a maximum of £10,000, from the Improving Life for Londoners fund once they have raised the first 25% from the Crowd.
