Mayor of London: Building Strong Communities

By 2025 all Londoners will have access to a community hub ensuring they can volunteer, get support and build strong networks. We will develop the idea of community hubs through engagement with London’s communities. At their core ‘hubs’ go beyond physical spaces and are about providing Londoners with access to support, knowledge and the ability to participate confidently in community life.

We know that London’s communities have been hugely impacted by Covid-19. Some communities have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic in areas such as health, employment, housing and access to green spaces.

The Mayor of London is offering funding for the capital's voluntary and community organisations to enable community-led projects that help to meet at least one of the following outcomes:

  • Londoners are supported to shape their communities post Covid-19
  • Unheard voices are amplified and heard so that communities have influence and control over decisions
  • Feelings of belonging are increased; loneliness and social isolation are decreased
  • Feelings of connection within and across communities are strengthened
