Community Fund

This Council programme, which began in 2016, aims to support a wide range of organisations delivering or planning to deliver in Croydon to offer services and activities improving outcomes for residents in the borough. The Community Fund for 2020-2023 consisted of 5 commissioning opportunities and a small grants process.

The Community Fund Outcomes tender (for amounts over £15k per year) took place in 2019. See the groups that were awarded for a period of 3 years here.
