We are launching Community Investment Fund 2022 for local resident groups and organisations to run community projects that benefit Lewisham Homes residents. Applications are welcomed for grants up to £5000 for projects and engagement that occur any time between May 2022 and December 2022.
As part of our vision to create thriving communities and places people are proud to call home, the Community Investment Fund must provide the following:
- Training and employment opportunities for residents
- Activities for young people, to improve life chances and reduce anti-social behaviour
- Digital support to improve skills and assist with employment and benefit claims
- Improved health and wellbeing of our residents
2022 is also the year that Lewisham is the London Borough of Culture. We will be considering applications which fit in to the themes of Borough of Culture and that support Lewisham Homes residents to get involved in the Borough of Culture activities.
The fund will open on 31 January and close at midday on 3 March. You can access the application form here.
If you want to find out more, we are hosting two webinars for potential applicants where you can ask questions and hear what residents have been telling us they want prioritised over the next year.
The webinars will be held on Zoom and you can join on the following links. There is no need to pre-register.
