Redbridge Community Seed Fund

Closing date: Friday, 1 March, 2024

The Redbridge Community Seed Fund (RCSF) is offering grants to support not for profit groups to carry out work and projects that support the delivery of the four priorities the Redbridge Plan:

  • Safe and Healthy
  • Homes and Neighbourhood
  • Jobs and Skills
  • Clean and Green

and/or create:

  • a More Equitable Redbridge.

Applications demonstrating a commitment to delivering services in “The Redbridge Way”, as set out in the Redbridge Plan will be prioritised:

  • Prevention: activities and planning that help to address issues at an early stage and prevent increases in demand or worse outcomes.
  • Collaboration: How we collaborate with residents, businesses, public bodies, voluntary and community sector, and others to achieve greater results.
  • Responsibility: How we set out the responsibilities of the council and those of our residents, businesses, and partners

Applications will be assessed on a monthly basis. The deadlines for submitting an application for it to be assessed as part of that month's process are:
