The Lewisham central assembly funding is now open for groups and organisation who can deliver projects which improve the Lewisham Central area. We hope to involve people from all parts of the ward while working to help people of all ages and backgrounds to achieve their aspirations and overcome any disadvantage.

How much is available?

There is £12,500 available to apply from. In addition a Locality Fund of £2,500 known as the Councillor Discretionary fund is also available for community activities or projects of a one-off nature. Projects proposed for the £2,500 grant does not need to adhere to one of the Assembly priorities, but must benefit or enhance local community. The Lewisham Central Councillors – Stella Jeffrey, Joani Reid and Damien Egan – have agreed that this discretionary fund should also be voted on by the Assembly.
