Aims and activities

In response to the Covid-19 crisis, 67 of London’s funders worked together to provide co-ordinated funding to support groups responding to the needs of the capital's communities. Between March 2020 and March 2021, over £57million was given out in almost 3,300 grants.

The single application point for charities and community groups enabled organisations to access funding from multiple funders in a fast and efficient way. It was designed based on insights from groups working with Londoners, to ensure that it was flexible and responded to needs as they emerged.
