Tower Hamlets Homes is proud to announce that the Inspiring Communities Fund is now open for a third round of funding for 2016.

The Fund will offer grants of between £100 - £2000 to THH residents who have great ideas to improve their local neighbourhoods. The Fund aims to help local people improve where they live through social activities or small environmental projects. If you’ve ever wanted to start a Community Food Garden or set up a service to help others in your neighbourhood – now’s your chance.

We are particularly keen to fund locally based social activities that target young people (as well as other age groups) and bring people in our neighbourhoods together. You can apply for funding to support local events, projects and activities or even equipment for your community centre. Individual residents*, Community Groups and Tenants’ and Residents’ Associations can apply

Fokrul Hoque, Resident Engagement Manager at THH said:

"Our neighbourhoods are filled with people who want to make a difference where they live. The THH Inspiring Communities Fund will provide local residents with the means to kick-start great initiatives - making tangible improvements to their neighbourhoods.”  

If you’re a THH resident and you’ve got a great idea for a project that could make a real difference to your community – we want to hear from you!

To apply, simply download, complete and return your applications to us by 5pm on Monday 25 July.
