What is the London Community Response?

We know that London’s civil society (and the communities they serve) have been affected in a myriad of ways by the covid-19 pandemic. Many organisations have had the dual negative impact of loss of income and increasing need – all whilst trying to navigate ‘the new normal’ when delivering their services.

In response to the covid-19 crisis London’s funders have been working together to provide a coordinated funding to support groups responding to the needs of the capital's communities. The single application point for charities and community groups enables organisations to access funding from multiple funders in a fast and efficient way. It has been designed based on insights from groups working with Londoners, to ensure that it is flexible and responds to these needs as they emerge over the coming weeks and months. 

The London Community Response is powered by London Funders - the membership network for funders and investors of London’s civil society. 

We’re here to enable funders from all sectors to be effective.  We’re focused on collaboration – convening funders to connect, contribute and cooperate together, to help people across London’s communities to live better lives. Email us to find out more.
