Elephant and Castle Community Fund

Please note - this fund is now closed.

The Elephant and Castle Community Fund aims to build on the strengths of local people, celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the area, and support the people who are most at need in this time of change.

Originally set up in 2012, the fund supported the local community during the regeneration of the area. Since then the fund has continued thanks to generous donations from both Southwark Council and Lendlease.

Grants of between £500 to £5,000 are available for projects that support residents of the Elephant and Castle Opportunity Area.

We will be working with our partners at Community Southwark who will be running a funding workshop on 23rd March at 6pm to provide help to groups who wish to apply. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment – email for more information.

Applications must address at least one of the following themes:

  1. Further Education, Skill Building, Training and Entrepreneurship
  2. Arts and Culture
  3. Environment
  4. Older Residents

Application deadline 12pm 18th April 2017
