Meet the Funder - ESDF Save London Lives

If you are thinking of making an application to the ESDF Save London Lives programme, we are holding two ‘Meet the Funder’ events that will give organisations an opportunity to learn more about the fund and ask questions. 

The sessions will support organisations to understand the criteria and focus of the programme, how to complete the application form and provide an opportunity for organisations to ask questions on a one to one basis before the programme closes on the 10th of September 2018.

Save London Lives, part of the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund, aims to build a better and more robust community response to youth violence in London by increasing the impact and resilience of organisations working to reduce violence among young people across London. The fund will encourage and support locally based solutions that are developed and delivered by a range of organisations, working together in areas across London. 

Through this fund we will provide grant funding, capacity support and networking opportunities to organisations in London who are responding to youth violence under at least one of the following three themes:

  • Trauma
  • School
  • Family

If you are planning on attending this event, please ensure your project addresses one of the above themes.

Grants of up to £20,000 are available over two years, and organisations operating in any London borough with an income of under £500,000 are eligible to apply.
