Team London Small Grants

Jul 18, 2019 | Funding

This year Team London Small Grants will support volunteering projects that help people who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation. These Londoners are sometimes referred through social prescribing to small charities and voluntary sector organisations. The grants will help to develop the grantees’ ability to engage sustainably with social prescribing.
Social problems such as loneliness, housing, employability and debt can affect both physical and mental health and well being. Around one in five visits to the GP are for non-clinical reasons. Social prescribing can help address these root causes and help patients improve their health.
Although social prescribing is currently available in many areas of London, provision is variable. The Mayor is seeking to support the growth of social prescribing through his London Health Inequalities Strategy. His ambition is to help more Londoners in vulnerable or deprived communities improve their health and well-being through social prescribing.
This year’s Team London Small Grants will fund projects that:

  • Help people who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation, for whatever reason, who have been referred to a local voluntary sector organisation through social prescribing
  • Support small organisations that are established and experienced in delivering support to their local community to help address loneliness and social isolation issues
  • Support small organisations that are yet to connect to their local social prescribing networks or are already connected to social prescribing and will use the grant to add value to the work they are already doing
  • Help to develop the organisation’s capacity to engage sustainably with the social prescribing model and develop new ways of working
  • Recruit and support volunteers to deliver the project

These small grants will provide a source of income for smaller organisations (annual turnover under £500,000) to meet local needs which may not meet the criteria for larger-scale funding.
Please read their Supporting Guidance Document for more information about the grants as well as guidance for questions within the application.

Deadline for applications is 13 September 2019.
They will be holding a market warming event on Thursday 1 August for small charities who are interested in applying. More detail here:
