Support for High Streets
The High Street Recovery Fund
Southwark Council have launched the fund in response to the COVID-19 crisis and we're looking for inspirational ideas, brought to life through projects located in one of the borough’s high streets or town centres, and designed to help shops and businesses to grow and thrive once again.
The COVID-19 crisis has had a significant impact on our town centres and high streets, exacerbating pre-existing problems and creating new challenges. The council has therefore made their protection and development a priority.
The aim of the fund is to attract more people back to Southwark’s high streets and town centres and to increase the amount spent in the area. All projects need to make a positive contribution to help local small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) thrive and make our high streets more inclusive, particularly for low income and Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. We're inviting applications for funding for projects under six new themes:
- healthy and safe high streets
- cultural and community events
- vibrant, resilient and connected high streets
- an inclusive, greener local economy
- sustainable, accessible places
- Southwark Stands Together
