Telegraph Hill 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 £5,000.

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.

If you have an idea but are not part of an organisation you can still apply and we may be able to work with you on your idea.

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

  • Unemployment and skills development.
  • Activities for older people.
  • Neighbourliness and tackling social isolation.
  • Community safety, wellbeing and tackling anti-social behaviour.

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.
