London Community Response

Basic information


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. 

The fund was powered by London Funders, a cross-sector membership network for funders and investors in London’s civil society.
