The Mayor of London has launched the Community-Led Recovery Programme that aims to work with communities that are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to lay foundations for the future. Applications are invited from user-led community, voluntary, faith, cultural, grassroots organisations working in Greater London. The programme will offer two grant schemes:
- Community-Led Action Grant: grants of up to £9,000 to initiate social action projects which gather new insights.
- London Community Story Grant: grants of up to £1,500 to organisations with existing projects that capture Londoner’s experience of COVID-19, supporting them to be presented and shared to a wider audience.
Online information sessions and application workshops are being held for potential applicants on Thursday 28 January and Wednesday 3 February. The deadline for applications is 12pm Friday 19 February 2021. Find out more.
