Voluntary Action Lewisham have compiled a helpful list of funding opportunities. Grants and deadlines vary.
See the attached document for a comprehensive list of opportunities. Some which may be of particular interest:
Ravensbourne Rotary Club, Annual Small Community Grants Fund
Grant value: between £250 and £500
The Ravensbourne Rotary club is launching their Annual Small Community Grants Fund for 2018/19. This fund is raised from our Christmas collections both from around the streets of Catford with our Santa sleigh, our static collections at Sainsbury’s in Sydenham and Homebase in Bellingham. As it is collected locally we aim to distribute it locally in the boroughs of Lewisham and Bromley.
Deadline: 25 December 2018. Decision last week of January.
How to apply | The Ravensbourne Rotary Club requires a short, simple application from small charities and organisations doing great work in the borough of Lewisham. Please send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org a simple cut and paste of your charity/organisation description of the general work being done along with a short paragraph on what you would do with the grant. It does not have to be anything new, just whatever is your greatest need. The results of this submission may be viewed on the VAL website.
