Peabody Community Fund
If you support Peabody communities, you can apply for a grant of up to £5,000.
The Peabody Community Fund grants funding to projects and activities which improve the quality of life of Peabody residents.
The fund provides grants of between £500 to £5,000 to support activities that:
- Respond to community need
- Bring communities together
- Promote wellbeing
Who can apply
If you are an organisation or individual who works with Peabody communities and are responding to an identified need, you may be eligible for a grant. However, we will prioritise:
- Projects that address the needs of the most disadvantaged members of the community
- Peabody resident-led projects
- Youth-led projects
- Projects located in the boroughs of Haringey, Hillingdon, Redbridge and Wandsworth
- There will also be ring-fenced funds for projects supporting residents from Waltham Forest and Thamesmead.
How to apply
The closing date for current fund applications in Wednesday 21 March 2018 at 12 noon. Future funding rounds will be announced after this date.
What happens after I apply?
All applicants will be notified about their outcome in writing. If your application fits the Community Grants programme themes and priority areas, it'll be shortlisted.
You'll then be contacted by a Programme Manager from The London Community Foundation for an informal chat, to find out more about your project and to present it to The Peabody Community Fund panel.
The Peabody Community Investment team can help Peabody resident groups, or organisations wanting to work on a Peabody estate, that need support with new ideas and/or to discuss a project. You can contact the Community Investment Team on 020 3828 4317 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
