The Peabody Community Fund

The fund was founded in 2014 and exists to support projects and activities designed to improve the quality of life of Peabody residents and the wider community.

Deadline: 14th July 2021

Open Until:

Posted: 10/03/2022

The fund is able to support charities and community organisations providing ongoing/regular activities
benefitting residents of all ages. 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 24
  • There will also be restricted funds for projects supporting Peabody residents living in Waltham Forest
  • The 8 priority boroughs for 2021/22 are:
    Barnet, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Kensington & Chelsea, Lewisham, Newham, Wandsworth and Westminster

Note: Activities must
demonstrate the beneficiaries will primarily be Peabody residents. To
find out where Peabody estates are near you, please refer to the Peabody website.


Projects must align with one or more of the three fund themes:

  • Healthy – helping people with their physical and mental wellbeing
  • Wealthy – supporting people to become financially independent through employment, enterprise and education
  • Happy – helping people make the most out of their lives through active citizenship, volunteering and community involvement
