Meeting information

The Lewisham Central Assembly fund 2018–19

The Lewisham Central Assembly fund is now open for groups and organisations who can deliver projects which improve the Lewisham Central area.

Your proposal should reflect one or more of our priorities as identified by local people and meet other eligibility criteria.

Current priorities

  1. Improving health and wellbeing.

  2. Cleaner, better environment.

  3. Better access to activities for children and young people.

  4. Better access to activities and opportunities for the elderly.

  5. Promoting and improving community cohesion.

How much is available?

There is £12,500 available.

Community activities or projects of a one-off nature can also apply for a £2,500 locality fund (the councillors' discretionary fund). These projects do not need to meet one of the assembly priorities but they must benefit or enhance local community. You will find the application form for this fund below.

What can it be spent on?

The money could be used to

  • start up a project

  • support a group to develop new activities

  • support a larger project that has secured funding from other sources.
