Main Grants Programme

Closed 25 Oct 2018

Opened 26 Jul 2018


This consultation is about the proposed approach to, and priorities for,  Lewisham Council’s main grants programme.  We want to seek views on the proposed grants criteria and a number of questions relating to how we might allocate funding across the programme.

Why We Are Consulting

Lewisham’s main grant programme was last fully let in 2015 following a full public consultation on the revised framework which was agreed by Mayor and Cabinet (Contracts) on 12 November 2014.

We now need to re-let the programme and as such we are undertaking this consultation to seek the views of residents and the sector regarding priorities and our proposed approach with a view to this informing our approach once overall budgets are decided.
