Lee Green Assembly fund 2018–19  

The assembly fund is now open for applications from local groups and organisations.

Funding criteria

Your proposal should reflect one or more of our priorities (listed above) that were identified by residents, community groups and local businesses.

We are looking for proposals that will help improve our local living environment and make Lee Green a safer, cleaner and greener place to live, work and learn.

We also want proposals that seek to create development opportunities for Lee Green residents.

How much is available?

There is £12,500 available.

In addition a locality fund of £2,500 known as the councillors' discretionary fund is also available for community activities or projects of a one-off nature (application form below). Projects proposed for this fund do not need to meet one of the assembly priorities but must benefit or enhance local community.

What can it be spent on?

The money could be used to:

  • start up a project

  • support a group to develop new activities

  • support a larger project that has secured funding from other sources.

How to apply
