Consultation launched on next phase of Grants Programme

London Councils is inviting people and organisations across the capital to respond to a new consultation on the future of the next phase of its Grants Programme.

London boroughs and the City of London Corporation jointly fund the London Councils Grants Programme and decide its priorities. The pan-London scheme enables boroughs to work together and with the voluntary and community sector to fund crucial services.

The consultation is seeking views on a potential 2026-2030 phase of the Grants Programme. It will run until June 4th, after which responses will be reviewed by the members of the Grants Committee and incorporated into their decision-making process.

Councillor Kaya Comer-Schwartz, Chair of London Councils' Grants Committee said:

“The Grants Programme is a source of pride for London’s local Leaders, funding vital services for people who need specialist support and tackling some of the most pressing issues across London. The current programme is already making a difference for people who are homeless or those at risk from or who have been subjected to sexual and domestic abuse.

“The potential next cycle of the pan-London Grants Programme is due to start in April 2026 and we are keen to ensure that our planning takes proper account of the current and emerging needs of London’s residents, as well as the context local government is working in.

“This consultation will be vital in learning from and developing our relationship with partners in the voluntary and community sector. We look forward to working collaboratively and listening to feedback to ensure the Grants Programme adds value where Londoners need it most.”
