Who can apply?

Any group or organisation based in Lambeth or with a strong connection to Lambeth can apply to the Community Connections Fund.

You can be linked with anywhere in the borough, but your proposed project must be located within the four NCIL neighbourhood areas.

Types of organisations who can apply:

•    Charity
•    Voluntary organisation
•    Business
•    Community group
•    Residents group
•    Social enterprises / Community Interest Companies


The Community Connections Fund encourages applications from organisations working in partnership. Partnership/Collaboration applications should be submitted by one of the collaborating organisations, the Lead Organisation.

Individuals and Unregistered Groups 

If you are an individual, unregistered group or organisation, but you have a great idea for a community project, we also want to hear from you!

You can apply for a Development or Project Grant by working with a Nurture Organisation, who will submit the application and sign the grant agreement on your behalf.

Application Support

We will be providing support to applicants throughout the process. The Community Connections team will be attending Neighbourhood events and holding support surgeries. Please sign up to our mailing list below if you would like to be kept up to date with the Community Connections Fund and the support on offer.
