Helping people thrive

Grants in Newham

EECF has partnered with 20 Fenchurch Street to establish The 20 Fenchurch Street Legacy Fund with the aim of improving employment prospects and opportunities for people living in London’s most deprived areas.  The 20 Fenchurch Street Legacy Fund awards grants to high quality projects that will make a positive and long-lasting difference to residents in the City of London, Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets.  

Organisations may apply for up to £20,000 for one year’s funding towards projects that are supporting participants to gain essential employability skills, provide them with work or volunteering experience and ultimately move them into sustainable employment or self-employment.

The 2018 application deadline will be announced later this year. Please click here to sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with grants news.
