Our Community Fund is open for applications

09/09/2020

We’ve launched a community fund to support our communities in London and Hertfordshire. This funding will be invested in projects that make a difference to our communities. This is all part of our vision to build strong communities where people can thrive. It is now more important than ever to support our residents and communities to recover from the impact of COVID-19.

Here is all you need to know about our community fund and the terms and condition you must read before making an application.
 

Who can apply?

Origin Housing resident groups, local voluntary and community groups, charities, social enterprises and any not-for-profit organisations. Individual residents can also apply if they provide evidence that other residents will be involved and that the project is inclusive.
 

What will we fund?

 

We award grants of up to £2,000 for projects that address a need in the local community and benefit our residents. We are particularly keen to receive applications that support our Together strategy priorities to invest in communities or projects that tackle the impact of COVID-19. These priorities are:

  • Supporting families - food projects, activities, community events.

  • Activities for young people - training and personal development, sports, arts, and events.
  • Activities for older people – wellbeing, activities to tackle loneliness.
  • Gardening or environmental projects.
  • Financial management – advice and skills.
  • Digital inclusion- improving access, training or equipment solutions.
  • Employment and training – developing skills, local enterprises and start-up.
