Open Until:

Posted: 10/03/2022

Groups working with Southern Housing Group residents in London (including in Lewisham) and across the South of England may apply for funding to support youth activities and community cohesive projects that benefit both residents and the local community.

Grants of up to £2,500 can support a number of different things, including activities such as music production workshops and community dog shows, as long as the majority of participants are Southern Housing Group residents. The grant will cover the costs directly associated with the projects, including staff costs, volunteer expenses, hall hire and buying equipment.

Southern Housing Group established the WeDecide! Community Fund scheme as part of its active support of youth empowerment. The grants are administered by the Leaders in Community Consultancy which is a youth led panel made up of young volunteers who are Southern Housing Group residents. They meet quarterly to decide which projects will most benefit local communities.

Although it is not necessary to be an established organisation or registered charity to apply, groups must be constituted with a bank account in their name and the majority of participants must be Southern Housing Group residents.

Grant recipients will receive half of the funds at the start of the project and the other half upon completion, providing they have met their contractual obligations.

 An application form and guidelines can be found on the Southern Housing Group website.

The next deadline for applications is October 29, 2012.
