Sydenham assembly fund 2017–18

The assembly fund is a budget allocated to each ward to meet the local assembly priorities. The fund may also be used as ‘seed’ funding to attract other sources of finance.

How much is available?

You can apply for up to £2,000.

What can it be spent on?  

The money could be used to start up a project, support a group to develop new activities, or support a larger project that has secured funding from other sources. 

The projects must also aim to tackle the priorities that have been identified by residents, community groups and local businesses:

  • Keeping Sydenham clean and green.
  • Crime and antisocial behaviour.
  • Health and Wellbeing.
  • Vibrant high street.
  • Bringing the community together.

In addition to meeting the priorities, applications will also be assessed on whether:

  • they offer direct benefit to people who live, work or study in the ward
  • there is evidence of need, and whether a similar resource exists in the ward
  • it is value for money
  • it is sustainable once assembly funding stops
  • alternative funding has been explored and is available.

How to apply

The deadline date for applications is 9am on Monday 9 October 2017.
