Emergency Fund

In response to Covid-19, the Peckham Settlement are able to offer emergency funding from June 2020.

The Emergency Fund will support charities and community groups operating for the benefit of residents in SE15, and the immediate surroundings. Grants of up to £500 will be available for capital, project or core costs.

We welcome applications from all types of projects and organisations (whether constituted or not). We are particularly keen to support work focused on:

  • food poverty
  • digital exclusion
  • mental health
  • isolation
  • community support
  • education

Deadline
There is no set deadline for applications, which will be assessed on a rolling basis. This fund is limited, and subject to change, so please apply at the earliest possible opportunity.

How to Apply
Please apply via our online form. We welcome questions in advance, and are available to talk through your application before submitting.

  • Complete the online form here
  • If you would like to speak to us about your application, or would like help completing it, please email us at peckhamsettlement.org@gmail.com.

Awarding Process
Applications will be assessed by the Trustees, who will be looking for relevance to the needs of SE15 and the potential impact of the grant.

We aim to let you know if you have been successful or not within a month. If successful, we will transfer the funds by cheque as soon as possible. We can look at sending the money in a different way if you prefer.

We will keep in touch with all recipients about how you have used the money, but you will not need to write a full report.
