This is the latest round of funding from the London Community Response – a unique coalition of over 65 funders from across sectors. So far, over £42m has been distributed to London’s civil society organisations through the collaboration, with funding awarded to groups in all 33 boroughs.

London Community Response funders are prioritising organisations that are led by and for marginalised communities; that are trusted by people at high risk of negative impacts from covid-19; and groups that have a turnover of less than £1m a year.
