The grant making trust Lawrence Atwell’s Charity has launched a new Charities Programme, supporting NEET young people in London and Kent into employment.
Grants of up to £10,000 per-annum are available to charities running projects that support disadvantaged young people, to help them move into meaningful work. Awards for three years of funding are open to consideration.

The new Merton Giving Fund was launched on 14th May 2019.
The Merton Giving Fund will fund not-for-profit, voluntary, community and faith organisations, based in or delivering services in Merton.  We will not fund individuals, sole traders or organisations established to make a profit.
