We are proud to focus on Lewisham and aim to make a real difference to the lives of Lewisham Homes residents and our communities. One of the ways we will do this is through the launch of the Community Investment Fund.
What is the Community Investment Fund?
The Community Investment Fund will enable resident groups and organisations to bid for funding to spend in their communities.
With the initial launch of the Small Fund option, residents groups, community organisations and social enterprises can bid for funding of up to £2.5k to deliver projects that provide opportunities to Lewisham Homes residents.
What are we looking for?
Following the outbreak of Covid-19 (coronavirus), we are initially looking for projects that support residents remotely.
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
How will it be assessed?
A panel consisting of an independent chair, local residents and Lewisham Homes staff will assess the applications.
Who can apply?
Anyone with a project or initiative that will support Lewisham Homes residents during the coronavirus outbreak.
You can find more information on the application site.
Applications close midnight 5 July 2020.
