About the Peabody Community Fund

The London
Community Foundation is delighted to be managing the Peabody Community Grants
funding programme in 2014-15.  The Community Grants programme awards
grants to charities, resident and community organisations working for the
benefit of people who live in the areas in which Peabody operates.

Purpose: For
activities which improve the quality of life of Peabody residents by supporting
local activities that:

  • Are responding to identified
    community need
  • Bring communities together
  • Promote wellbeing

The Fund is able to
support activities benefitting residents of all ages and priority will be given to:

  • Organisations/projects addressing the
    needs of the most disadvantaged members of the community
  • Peabody resident-led projects. If an
    applicant organisation is not resident-led, they will need to demonstrate
    strong connections with local residents, strong partnership working in the
    locality, a commitment to the locality after the proposed project is complete,
    and a clear understanding of community needs
  • Youth led projects up to the age of

Income threshold: Less than £100,000. However, organisations with an
annual income of less than £500,000 are eligible to apply if they have a proven
track record of working with Peabody residents.

Note: Activities
must demonstrate that the beneficiaries will be Peabody residents.

Grant size: Grants
of between £500 and £5,000 are available.

Closing dates: 5pm on Friday 12th December 2014 and 5pm on Friday
6th March 2015.
