Up to £10,000 available for your community project from the #MyWestminster Fund
Following its successful launch Westminster Council is delighted to announce that the second round of bidding for the #MyWestminster Fund is now open. Up to £10,000 per project is available to bid for if you have a community project in Westminster for which you would like funding. This second round of bidding will close on Monday 27 August, so get your applications in as soon as possible.
The fund is open to all voluntary organisations, resident, faith and community groups within Westminster. Schools and other places that care for Westminster residents (such as residential care homes) are also eligible.
Westminster are looking for initiatives that meet at least one of the criteria below and that benefit residents across a neighbourhood in Westminster:
building community leadership and togetherness
celebrating community cohesion and building pride in vibrant, mixed neighbourhoods
improving the environment and greening
supporting young people to realise their potential
For projects, which cover single wards, the ward budget programme might be more appropriate for funding; you can find more information on the programme at www.westminster.gov.uk/ward-budgets.
Westminster cannot accept bids for funds supporting revenue costs of an organisation, nor bids from individuals and all projects must finish by end of March 2020.
If you are interested in applying, you can find out more and apply online at
