The Trust is announcing new funding priorities in summer 2017.

Trust for London is an independent charitable foundation that aim’s to tackle poverty and inequality in London and do this by: funding voluntary and charity groups – each year they make grants totalling around £7 million and at any one time are supporting up to 400 organisations; funding independent research; and providing knowledge and expertise on London’s social issues to policymakers and journalists.

The new priorities are expected to continue to focus on work which has the potential to influence and change policy, practice and public attitudes, and which proactively engages and involves beneficiaries of the work in the organisation and its advocacy work, e.g. campaigns. 

The session will cover:

  • Grant funding priorities
  • Social investment and crowdfunding
  • Research and funded campaigns
  • Issues, community assets and opportunities in Ealing and Hounslow

You will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
