FUNDING: Skills for Londoners – Community Outreach Grants

The Greater London Authority is seeking applications from community organisations who can help to signpost residents into adult education learning opportunities. 

Grants of up to £35,000 are available to community organisations who can work with local communities and help signpost Londoners to adult education opportunities.

Applications are open for the 2024-25 round of this programme for small community organisations. The aim is to raise awareness of London’s adult education opportunities, increase participation in adult learning skills provision, and help to build sustainable links between providers, community groups and the Londoners they work with.

The programme is open to user-led London-based community, voluntary, faith, cultural, or grassroots organisations.

They should be a registered charity, social enterprise or Community Interest Company that can demonstrate a track record of transparent financial accounting processes and have an annual income under £500,000.

Individuals and un-constituted community groups can apply by nominating a partner organisation to receive funds on their behalf.

A short series of information sessions will take place as below – click on a title to register interest:  

The closing date for applications is 5pm on 21 June 2024.
