Applications for Inspiring Communities Fund are open!

October 15, 2018

The Inspiring Communities Fund, a Get Living and East End Community Foundation (EECF) initiative, has released a new round of funding which will continue to support community-led groups local to East Village and Elephant Central neighbourhoods.

Organisations can apply for up to £3,000 worth of funding under the themes of health & wellbeing, people & communities and arts & culture.

Since it was set up in 2015, the Inspiring Communities Fund has awarded over £55,000 to more than 28 groups. Donations have been made to a variety of programmes, from netball and football clubs to choirs, theatre groups to gardening therapy workshops for those with disabilities.

The Inspiring Communities Fund has now reached more than 1,900 East End and Elephant & Castle residents and continues to make a positive impact on the lives of local people.

See which groups we’ve already worked with here.

Applications are made to the EECF which distributes the funding on behalf of Get Living. The next application deadline is Monday 29 October
