Mayor’s Civil Society Roots Fund is now open for applications

Apr 26, 2023 | Uncategorized

The Mayor’s Civil Society Roots Fund is now open for applications and invites equity-led organisations working with communities in Hounslow to apply.

Round 2 of the Fund will continue to be delivered in partnership with City Bridge Trust and The National Lottery Community Fund and will support organisations to strengthen their networks, capacity, and voice. It is not for delivery of front-line activity.

They are looking for organisations that want to develop new sectoral and/or cross sectoral partnerships, invest in organisational capacity building, research, training or enable space and time to think about what our communities need most. The fund is specifically aimed at supporting groups to be in a stronger place to respond to and serve the increasing and ever-changing needs of our communities.

Grants of up to £30,000 over 12 months (plus up to £2500 for additional access costs) will be awarded for projects starting September 2023, 2023.

Interested organisations will be requested to submit an Expression of Interest form by 19th May 2023, and successful applicants will be subsequently invited to submit a full application. The grants prospectus and EOI form is available on our website.

To support applicants through the two-stage application process, Community Regen, the programme support partner, are running in person and online information sessions on May 2nd 2023, at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Rd, London N7 6PA (fully accessible venue) which can be booked here for in person sessions and here for online sessions. BSL interpreters will be present for the 1.30pm in person session and the 12pm online session will be live captioned.

If you have questions about this fund, please email us at Sign up to the Mayor of London Communities newsletter to stay up to date.
