London Challenge Poverty Week Funding

In 2022, London Challenge Poverty Week will take place from Monday 17th October (the UN Day for the Eradication of Poverty) to Sunday 23th October!

Good news!

We are delighted that once again Trust for London have granted us some funding to support events and activities taking place during London Challenge Poverty Week (Monday 17th – Sunday 23rd October 2022). 

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 – especially as it is the week’s 5th  anniversary! 

If you are planning an event or an activity or would like to do so and a small grant would make that possible then now is the time to tell us. All you need to do to apply is to send us a short note (no more than 500 words) setting out what you are planning, how much you would like to apply for (in the region of £500 – £1000) and send it to us. 

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. 

All bids need to go to: and need to be in by Noon on August 19th 2022. We will aim to review applications and let you know the outcome as soon as possible after that date. 

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