Fund to create green spaces across London

LRSC community fund

Communities in London have until 1 October to apply for funding for projects that will ‘make the city greener’ – including reducing air pollution around schools.

The Mayor of London’s Greener City Community Fund is open to organisations, community groups, charities, housing associations and private landowners who own or manage green spaces, schools and boroughs.

The fund has been set up to improve and create green space across London – by creating connections between areas of green, enhancing active travel routes and creating natural play space for children.

There is also a new type of grant available this year to support projects in schools that help protect students from air pollution.

Communities can apply for small grants (£5k-£20k) or medium grants (£20k-£50k) – while funding provided as part of the school air quality greening grant ranges from £5k-£50k.
