Building Futures Fund

The Building Futures Fund (BCF) is a brand new grant stream that started in 2016 as a result of extensive consultation with the wider community and the Building Bridges Task Group. It was set up to support up to three organisations in its first application year (subsequent years’ funding availability will depend on the number selected in the pilot year). Groups can apply for up to £5,000 per year for two to three years (maximum £10,000-£15,000 total award) to deliver initiatives in north Southwark (SE1, SE16 or SE17). 

Alongside funding, selected applicant groups will each be matched with carefully selected businesses to support them to reach strategic aims. This may take place via quarterly meetings and collaborative projects throughout the funding terms. 

The aim of this fund is to support local organisations to achieve new levels of strategic growth and innovation; deliver more comprehensive and intuitive services/activities for their communities; and broker sustainable cross-sector partnerships.

In 2016 two organisations were appointed as BCF recipients, which means in 2017 we are welcoming applications to appoint a third organisation (only one will be selected). For this specific round we’d like to hear from organisations that deliver community related projects around the broader arts, culture and heritage sphere and we’re interested to see proposals that would incorporate elements of bringing some of these elements into London Bridge. 

The current recipients of the Building Futures Fund are Bermondsey Community Kitchen and South London Cares, and you can find out more about their work here.

The deadline for Expressions of Interest is 5pm 30 March 2017. An Expression of Interest shouldn't exceed 1000 words, and more details on what it would contain are listed in the guidelines document below. Following receipt of Expressions of Interest, a shortlist will be requested to complete application forms setting out their proposed initiatives in more detail. 

Download here the Building Futures Fund guidelines.
