Love Kingston Small Grants Open for Applications

Love Kingston Small Grants aim to support voluntary and community organisations working in the Royal Borough of Kingston by providing grants of up to £3,000 to contribute to, or fund, a project to take place within six months of the grants receipt.

The Love Kingston grant can be applied for to fund projects which work towards the alleviation of isolation and encouraging integration within the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

Grant Criteria

In particular, Love Kingston is looking to fund projects which address

  • poverty, disadvantage and isolation; and
  • encourage community cohesion and improve inter-community (including inter-generational activities)

In addition, priority will be given to beneficiary groups (not in any particular order) including:

  • young people,
  • older people,
  • unemployed, or those claiming out of work benefits.

Love Kingston is particularly interested in receiving applicants from charity and community groups. Applications will be evaluated on the above criteria and those projects which will have greatest impact or help the greatest number of people. Consideration will be given to the applicant’s ability to deliver the project.

Projects must benefit people living, working or studying in the Royal Borough of Kingston.

To apply please fill in the application form and return by email to or post to Love Kingston, Siddeley House, Canbury Park Road, KT2 6LX before midnight on 7 April 2018.
