The Place Makers Fund
We're helping to fund projects that will support and enhance local communities
Place Makers LocalPlace Makers Local replaced the previous Neighbourhood Committee Fund. It aims to develop and support local, community-led and place-based projects that reflect the needs of the local area and the L&Q Foundation's broader strategic priorities.
The Place Maker Local programme will be overseen by eight Neighbourhood Committees contained within the four regions of L&Q.

Neighbourhood Committees are formally constituted groups of residents and local representatives who actively work together to make a difference and improve their local communities and the services offered by L&Q.
Committee members make decisions on how funding is awarded for projects that improve the community. For the Place Makers Local Fund, each Neighbourhood Committee will have a budget of £37,500 to distribute.
The Place Makers Local Fund will give grants of a maximum of £10,000.
Place Makers GrowthProjects further along the development process can apply to the Place Makers Growth programme to enable them to sustain their activities for the benefit of the communities in a way that aligns with the Foundation's strategic priorities and objectives.
Funding aims to help organisations to expand or develop work that supports our residents. These will be organisations that are looking to grow their capacity or capability or are looking to expand their work into new areas of delivery.
The Place Makers Growth Fund will give grants up to a maximum of £50,000. This can be for capital and revenue.
