On the weekend of Friday 23 June to Sunday 25 June 2023, the Mayor’s Community Weekend comes to London for the first time.

This is a chance for communities and groups to come together to celebrate London’s resilience and diversity. The Mayor’s Community Weekend encourages people to engage with their local communities, bringing different groups together, strengthening connections and making new ones.

We’re working with the Mayor of London to offer groups who want to run events or activities, on the weekend of Friday 23 June to Sunday 25 June, grants of up to £1,500 from a total available fund of £250,000.

Communities or groups can apply for funding to run activities that celebrate and support building strong community relationships. We’ll prioritise grants that focus on one or more of the following:

  • bringing communities together – connecting and strengthening the relationships between neighbours and neighbourhoods.
  • celebrating the resilience and diversity of London’s communities, particularly the role young people can play in communities
  • bringing together volunteers and promoting volunteering
  • creating more chances for communities to enjoy green spaces.

We are offering grants between £500 and £1,500 of National Lottery funding. This will be open to all of Greater London’s 33 boroughs.

Events could include:

  • picnics
  • litter picks
  • sports
  • cultural events
  • street parties
  • community barbecues.

Voluntary or community groups
