RBKC: City Living Local Life

Kensington and Chelsea is divided into 18 wards which each have dedicated seed funding to support new projects. Wards with three Councillors have £30,000 per year and wards with two Councillors have £21,000. Wards can additionally carry over unused funds from one year to the next.

The funding is there to act as a source of help to get projects started, to contribute towards small one-off events or to act as match-funding from other sources.

Residents or community groups come up with ideas for local projects or activities work with Councillors and officers to develop them further. Once ideas for activities and projects are received by the Council, ward Councillors consider them against the aims of City Living, Local Life, which are to:

• enhance understanding of local areas (including
local history, local people, the area itself in terms
geography and places within it);
• build stronger connections and relationships between
local people;
• help to identify, assess and prioritise improvements in
local areas;
• devise practical solutions that involve local people; and
• work with local people and organisations to deliver
those solutions.
When applications are approved, funding is awarded and applicants set about delivering their project and keep Councillors informed.
