In 2023, London Challenge Poverty Week will take place from Monday 16 – Sunday 22 October!

Good news!

We are delighted that once again Trust for London have granted us some funding to support organisations to participate in London Challenge Poverty Week (Monday 16th – Sunday 22nd October 2023).

We want to give that money to smaller voluntary and community organisations to put on events and activities to help make this the most impactful week yet! For inspiration take a look at what took place during LCPW 2021 and 2022.

If you are planning an event or an activity or would like to do so and a small amount of funding would make that possible then now is the time to tell us!

All you need to do to apply is to send us an email to with the subject line “LCPW small events – [your organisation name], with a short note note. This does not need to be more than 500 words setting out what you are planning, how the activity will shine a light on the impact of poverty in London and/or challenge it and how much you would like to apply for (in the region of £500 – £1000). 

The deadline to apply for the funding is the 21st July.

If you are successful, then after the week we will ask you to give us a short report of what you achieved so we can help promote your work. 

If you would like to discuss your idea before you make an application, please contact
