Lambeth Community Fund – open for applications – Capital Community Foundation We have reopened applications for the two

main grant programmes for the Lambeth Community Fund. Both the small grants fund and strategic grants are open for applications. Both of the programmes are looking at tackling worklessness and how we can get more residents back onto a pathway to employment. Please see below for an outline of the fund themes, and check on our website for full guidance notes and eligibility criteria. Strategic Grants available: Between £10,000 and £20,000 Fund Themes: A. A tailored approach to personal and skills development for those seeking employment We are looking to fund organisations that respond to individuals needs, and provide a range of support services which enable individuals to progress into training or employment. B. Community Outreach – reaching people who are out of work

Funding is available for locally based organisations working within a particular community, in a small geographic area, estate or neighbourhood. We are looking to support groups helping people who are out of work, into training or employment. C. Direct routes to employment

We are looking to fund organisations supporting people directly into employment or apprenticeships. Funding is available for organisations working with the business and/or voluntary sector, encouraging apprenticeship opportunities, or training people to access jobs that are available. You must have at least one year’s experience in delivering worklessness activities and not have an income greater than £1,000,000. Previous Lambeth Community Fund applicants and grantees may apply.
