| No responses | Posted by: Isabel Young, Zain Ali | Theme: Work with Communities

Communities Driving Change Small Grants supports community projects in North West Tower Hamlets to improve health and wellbeing. This fund is part of the Tower Hamlets Communities Driving Change (CDC) programme funded by Tower Hamlets Council.

Our CDC Small Grants will support local people, groups and organisations to get their community projects off the ground.

· Are you a resident who has a great idea or wants to solve a problem in the community?

· Are you a small and informal community group who finds it harder to access funding?

· Are you an organisation or business based in the local community that wants to improve health and wellbeing? (for example, a school or a youth group)

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, this fund is for you!


We want to fund projects and ideas that:

· Are designed, planned and run by local people

· Involve a diverse range of people

· Take a creative approach to supporting communities during Coronavirus (COVID-19)

· Align with CDC’s core areas of work: community safety, opportunities for young people, support for parents and families, and digital skills and inclusion

· Are based in North West Tower Hamlets on the Chicksand estate, Collingwood estate, Columbia Road, and the surrounding area
