L&Q Launches £1m-a-year Charity Fund



Giant housing association L&Q is launching a £1million-a-year fund for charities.

Intended to support local people to thrive at every stage of their lives whether through education and employment, or promoting health and well-being or combating isolation; L&Q says The Place Makers Fund will be open shortly to bids from charities and community organisations in London and the South East.

This can include the Medway District, and L&Q says that charities of all sizes will be eligible.

The funding programme is being run by Rocket Science, working in partnership with L&Q, to use funds from the Foundation. All funded projects should support the Foundation to achieve its strategic outcomes:

  • Independent lives - Supporting residents to live independent lives, by enhancing residents’ social and economic resilience to sustain their tenancies
  • Successful places – Increasing social mobility and community engagement among L&Q residents and communities
  • Social responsibility - Integrating social responsibility in to our core activities, acting as an enabler and champion for corporate responsibility and sustainability across the organisation

To apply, L&Q ask that applicants show that their project works toward fulfilling one of the outcomes relating to the Foundation’s Successful Places strategy:


Children and young people having access to opportunities that can develop their skills and improve their life potential

Health and Wellbeing

Supporting everyone within L&Q communities to be happy and healthy through every life stage

Isolation and Exclusion

Creating a sense of community that enables people to engage and create a sense of togetherness

Because the scheme can be seen as a continuous rolling programme; L&Q advises there is no real deadline and so applications will be accepted at the beginning of each month until 2020.

For more details, or how to apply, you can email the L&Q Foundation or Rocket Science. You can also contact Rocket Science on 0207 164 6390 for more information.
