Peabody's Director of Programmes, Community Investment, Veronica Kirwan said: "This programme is a fantastic opportunity for those who work in our communities to access funding for their chosen activity or project to help make a real difference to the lives of Peabody residents."

London Community Foundation’s Chief Executive, Russell Delew said:
"We are delighted to again be managing the Peabody Community Fund and are proud that almost £300,000 has been awarded to 62 organisations supporting Peabody residents over the last three years.

Like Peabody, we're determined to give back to the city in which we work and live. Together we're harnessing ideas and talents in the community to tackle deep rooted problems that can't be solved elsewhere".

This is the fourth year of the Peabody Community Fund, in partnership with The London Community Foundation, with £150,000 available for groups across London (£25,000 of funding ring-fenced for Thamesmead).
