London Array Community Fund: Grants Available for Thanet Charities

THE London Array Community Fund, managed by Kent Community Foundation will provide additional funding for the charitable sector in Thanet.

The annual £40,000 London Array Community Fund is now open for applications from small charities and community groups in Thanet.

Grants of up to £5,000 are now available for applicants working within one or more of five key areas: (1) Environment, Children, (2) Young People and Families, (3) Elderly and Isolated, (4) Employability, Skills and Enterprise and (5) Vulnerable Adults.

For 2024, the application process has been simplified with an online application available via the Kent Community Foundation website. But be aware the closing date for applications is 30 April 2024.

Although London Array Wind Farm has supported local community organisations ranging from Thanet Wanderers to Arts in Ramsgate and local baby bank Mama to Mama since 2013, they have now changed the way that applications to the fund will be administered.  From  2024 onwards Kent Community Foundation will manage applications and the distribution of the majority of our funds on behalf of the wind farm.

Josephine McCartney, Chief Executive, of Kent Community Foundation said:

“As experienced grantmakers with a portfolio of over 90 philanthropic funds supporting the charitable sector across Kent,  we are delighted to have been asked to administer the funding from the London Array Community Fund. Applications are now open and we look forward to seeing the difference that the £40,000 funding will make to charities and community groups in Thanet.”

James Vause, London Array General Manager, said:

“We would like to thank Kent Community Foundation for taking over the administration of the fund and enabling ease of access to local groups to the monies.

“This fund is a voluntary commitment, created by London Array, to make a real difference to our local community.  A panel including staff from London Array Wind Farm and Kent Community Foundation will meet to assess projects and award grants.”

Interested applicants should apply online via the Kent Community Foundation website www.kentcf.org.uk/funding. Please specify the London Array Community Fund when applying.

If you have any questions or require any help accessing or completing your application form, contact the Kent Community Foundation team on: 01303 814 500.

The closing date for applications is 30 April 2024.
