We say

"We're passionate about London, its people, its communities, its vitality. But we also see it as a place that can exclude and marginalise.We believe LCF has a vital role to play in building a fairer and stronger London for all its residents and love working with donors and communities to help bring about positive social change."

They say

"LCF grant officers are very good at challenging, in a constructive way, the grant application to ensure that the potential grantee has done its homework and will be able to deliver. LCF are extremely flexible and approachable and they go beyond the bureaucratic process of the applications forms. This is crucial for the funded groups to feel supported, believed, and be able to talk about arising issues that need addressing in order to deliver the funded services."
