It is a vital resource showing activities and services for children and young people in London by postcode, town, borough, and activity.

Tesco Community Grants Programme !!

The Tesco Community Grants programme is managed nationally by Groundwork. We have been asked by Tesco to encourage applications into the fund from organisations that are delivering work that is tackling knife crime in the capital. If you are working on this important issue and can get a Tesco Community Grant application completed and submitted before the end of August there is a very good chance of securing some top-up funding to support your work. 
The application form is simple and can be accessed by clicking on the link below. You can also contact or with any questions or help you need to get your application submitted. 
If we can demonstrate a really positive response then there could be further Tesco resources earmarked for this sort of activity, both in London and nationally. Multiple bids from organisations working in more than one area are welcome.
