Tools for funders
7 Sep 2021
In March 2020 London Funders brought together 67 funders to form a ground-breaking funder collaboration – the London Community Response - to support the communities hit hardest by the pandemic. Through this collaboration over £57m has been given out in grants, with investment moving from crisis response at the start of the pandemic, to building towards the recovery and renewal of civil society as the programme progressed.
We’ve created this interactive data dashboard so you can see:
We hope by using this you will be able to dive into your area of interest and understand how the money was distributed through the LCR.
One of the founding principles of the London Community Response (LCR) was to be transparent and open. All of the funders involved in the collaboration committed to sharing and uploading their grants with 360 Giving, under the covid grants tracker, but we also wanted to show the impact of the LCR in one place.
Through five waves of funding, the LCR collected a wealth of data from over 10,000 applicants. This dashboard shows where the money went at a borough level, to what organisations and under what funding theme. We are hoping that by sharing this data, users will be able to understand how covid-19 impacted London’s communities and dig deeper into their own areas of interest and expertise. We recognise that this has been a time of significant change and challenge in our communities. We hope that by sharing this data we’ll be able to contribute to the understanding of how London and our communities have changed as a result of the pandemic, and what we need to do to best support Londoners through funding for the future.
