The Stronger Communities Fund

The Stronger Communities Fund is part of the Mayor’s Sport Unites programme. This is part of the Mayor’s vision to make London the most active and socially integrated city in the world.

The Stronger Communities Fund will support not-for-profit, small or informal organisations and groups, as well as individuals who often find it harder to access funding.

This is a one-year rolling programme so you can apply at any time before 27 July 2020 for funding between £2,000 and £5,000.

They are looking to invest in projects which help to improve social integration across London. They are looking for projects which use sport and physical activity to work towards at least one of the following outcomes:

  • build relationships between Londoners from different backgrounds – they’re interested in projects which regularly bring different groups of people in the community together to help build relationships, reduce any negative stereotyping between these groups, and increase trust in communities
  • reduce isolation and loneliness – sport and physical activity can be a great tool to engage socially isolated groups. They’re interested in projects which build people’s confidence and help them feel better supported in the community.
