Civil Society Roots Incubator



Grants are available to community sector collaborations in London led by groups who have been disproportionally affected by COVID-19, to capacity-build and strengthen their partnerships as they address the causes of this disproportionate impact.


The programme offers two funding streams:

  • Micro Awards - grants of up to £5,000 are available for early-stage projects that need support to bring organisations together to address a gap in support for Londoners. The award is an opportunity to test an idea, with a view to developing proof of concept.

  • Growth Awards - grants of up to £15,000 are available for collaborations and/or partnerships that have developed during the emergency response to COVID-19 and have evidenced their ability to work on the needs of the community they are part of, to help them develop stronger collaborations and/or partnerships and grow. The award is a financial boost to help partnerships become sustainable and/or replicable in order to increase their positive impact.

The programme is seeking to fund up to 30 collaborations and/or partnerships across Micro and Growth Awards.


Successful applicants will join a six-month incubator programme with a curriculum and bespoke support to further develop participants' skills and partnerships.


Maximum income must be less than £250,000 per year.
