Funding

Every year, we give nearly £1.5 million to local groups and projects in Southwark.  Find out how we spend this money and apply for funding now.

Money for Tenant and Resident Associations

A Tenant and Resident Associations (TRA) is a group of local residents, who give up their time to represent their estate / neighbourhood. Every year we put aside some of the rent we collect from our tenants to support TRAs. We call this the Tenant Fund.

Application forms

Tenant Fund grants for activities and running costs

Any TRA with less than £15,000 in the bank can apply for help with their activities and running costs. To apply contact the community engagement team.

Tenant Fund grants for community events

We're giving up to £1,000 to new and emerging TRAs who want to hold events, which will raise awareness of their existence and bring the community together. To apply contact the community engagement team.

Money for your neighbourhood

Are you part of a local group or project which makes a difference to your neighbourhood and brings people together? The Neighbourhoods Fund can support you with up to £5,000. 

Money for local charities

Local charities provide essential services to some of the most vulnerable residents in Southwark, including disabled people, older people, those with mental health issues and young people struggling to find work.

To support this great work, we are currently providing more than £360,000 worth of funding to 35 local charities. To find out more about the charities we've supported, go to our open data page.
