Peabody Community Fund

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.
