Ladywell Local Assembly

Meeting information

Funding applications open

Ladywell Assembly is inviting applications for its Councillor’s Discretionary Fund. They have a total of £2,500 available. Groups and organisations in Ladywell can apply for funding for community activities and one-off projects.

The fund is awarded at your local councillors’ discretion but, in keeping with Ladywell’s tradition, it will be processed through the Assembly Coordinating Committee and voted on at the Assembly meeting on 8 October 2019.

You can bid for up to £500 for each project. Bids for less than £500 will mean more money is available to a wider range of groups.

Because you can only bid for limited amounts, the process for assessing and monitoring bids will be less complex than normal. Successful groups will nevertheless be expected to report back to the Assembly on their project.

How to apply

Complete the application form and send it to adeyinka.joseph@lewisham.gov.uk.

The closing date for bids is Wednesday 2 October 2019. For further information, please call 020 8314 6026 or email adeyinka.joseph@lewisham.gov.uk.
