#MyWestminster fund

Applications for the first round of funding from the #MyWestminster Fund have now closed.  The successful recipients will be contacted and announced on this page in the week commencing 19th March.  The next round of funding will open in June 2018 so please keep checking this page for further details.

Your application 

The fund is open to all voluntary organisations, resident, faith and community groups within Westminster. This includes schools and other establishments which care for Westminster residents (such as residential care homes). 

All individual applications must be for under £10,000. 

Your project must support one of these themes: 

  • community leadership and cohesion 
  • pride in vibrant, mixed neighbourhoods 
  • air quality and the environment 
  • young people 

*However, we will welcome applications for events in a individual ward (during the first round of funding from January to March 2018) if they run at the same time as our MyWestminster Day in summer. If you interested in applying on this basis, email mywestminsterfund@westminster.gov.uk.

The ward budget programme will continue in May. Find out more. 

We cannot accept bids for funds supporting revenue costs of an organisation, or bids from individuals. All projects must finish by end of March 2020.
