Matchfunding to reduce poverty and inequality in the capital

Are you an organisation based and working in outer London?

The Connected Communities Matchfund helps organisations to deliver projects making change happen in their communities.

From a community scheme for lending tools to a peer-to-peer bereavement scheme for young people, we want to support projects tackling poverty, inequality and isolation head on.

We're looking for projects that are making an impact within three key themes:

  • Strengthening voice of those directly experiencing poverty and inequality by enabling them to speak out for themselves and to campaign for positive change.
  • Community activities, led by communities, in isolated areas which bring together different groups of people to respond to local needs and gaps in services, particularly in areas that have experienced a rapid change in their population, including increased levels of poverty. 
  • Improving advice work by support groups already providing social welfare advice that prevents problems becoming more serious, complex and costly, and empowers clients to resolve problems and take more control over their lives.

You could get up to 50% of your target (to a maximum £10,000) on top of what you raise from the crowd.
