We’re focused on enabling funders to commit to working together to tackle the issues facing London. Our aim is to strengthen practice, increase the impact of assets and resources through aligning these effectively across funders, and create the mechanisms that enable collaboration to work.
From the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017 to the pandemic in 2020, we’ve also been bringing our members together in times of crisis, ensuring that there has been an effective, coordinated response from funders to support London’s communities.
We’re drawing on the lessons we have learnt from coordinating emergency responses to major events affecting Londoners. We think the way funders have supported London’s communities during crisis provides a platform for future work where funders can be agile – connecting and collaborating with each other in the process.
To help strengthen collaboration within London's funding community, we also run a number of funder networks. From borough based funder network to our series of issue based networks, we bring our members together to generate new ideas and identify opportunities to work together for the benefit of all Londoners.
