Community Resilience Fund – Round 2

Community Resilience Fund - Round 2!


We are very excited to announce that the Community Resilience Fund is back for a second round.

There has been a number of emergencies over the past few years. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic, Afghan refugee crisis, Ukraine crisis, and 2022 heatwave all greatly impacted London and its residents. Through its response, the voluntary sector proved that it is vital to overcoming such emergencies.

Created in partnership with the Greater London Authority, the Community Resilience Fund aims to help London become more resilient to emergencies. Specifically, by supporting projects that create partnerships between the voluntary and community sector, local authorities, and Borough Resilience Forums.

So, through better collaboration, London’s emergency preparedness can improve across all sectors.
