We Make Camden Social Action Fund

Organisations and individuals can apply for grants of £500-£1,500 for initiatives that support:

• Social Action in the 4 mission areas (see below)

• Social Cohesion

• Local responses and solutions to challenges/ issues/ needs

In addition to the small grants, people can access support to apply, and you don’t need to be an incorporated community group or organisation to access funds.

The “We Make Camden Kit” gives money and support to Camden residents and community groups who have great ideas for their communities.

Residents and community groups can apply via Camden Giving’s website to receive up to £1,500 to deliver ideas that contribute to four core themes, also known as Camden’s missions:

• Food poverty and sustainability - encouraging experimentation, new partnerships, entrepreneurial activity and community-led activities responding to food poverty.

• Diversity in positions of power – making leadership positions more accessible and inclusive to people from a wide range of backgrounds by removing traditional barriers to entry and to develop and promote modern and inclusive leadership spaces.

• Health and sustainability of estates – creating neighbourhoods and living spaces that people love to live in.

• Opportunities for young people – helping young people explore their interests, express creatively, and be safe to experiment and try out things so that they can make well-informed choices about their future.

Residents can also receive support with insurance, safeguarding and connections to make their ideas a success. Decisions on who receives funding and support are made by a panel of Camden residents from across the borough, who have diverse experiences of Camden, with the panel of Camden residents supported by a partnership between Camden Council and Camden Giving.

Applications will open on the 8th July and will be stay open on a rolling basis for 1 year. Applicants can expect to receive an outcome on their application within 3 weeks of applying.
