Lewisham Tenants Fund are encouraging Lewisham council tenants and non-profit organisations to apply for funding up to the cost of £1,200 from our new funding this year, My Community Grant.
We are glad that we are able to continue supporting small scale projects for a second year that provide clear benefits for Lewisham council tenants that do not have a Tenants and Residents Association within their neighbourhood.
Here are a ‘snippet’ of the 17 community projects that were funded last year by us across Lewisham;
60up CIC – Christina Israel

Exercise classes and healthy living lifestyle activities for residents aged 60+ living at Lewis Silkins House sheltered housing scheme.
Somerville Play and Provision – Bradley Cummings and Danielle Heath
