Grenfell Projects Fund - Year Two

Closes 1 Apr 2021

Opened 18 Feb 2021

Overview

We are now two years into the Council’s five-year Grenfell Recovery Strategy and we're keen to build on the excellent work done by local people in North Kensington in developing community resilience. With the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic brings still present, we want to codesign the next year of the programme.

The next round of the Grenfell Projects Fund will be opening in spring 2021. The Grenfell Projects Fund launched for the first time last year and we now want to work with the community to learn the lessons from last year and improve the fund for everyone.

What have we heard from the community so far?

  • Grenfell communities need projects that can be delivered during the Covid-19 pandemic to support their needs now. This means they would like an additional theme which allows for projects to meet needs arising from the impact of the pandemic.
  • Grenfell communities want Round 2 of the Grenfell Projects Fund to be delayed until after the vaccine roll out so that projects can be delivered in person
  • The community-led decision-making process needs to be more inclusive and fairer, and people applying and presenting their projects need more support
  • The impact of successful projects needs to be assessed more effectively

Based on this feedback we have agreed the following principles. The survey questions are an opportunity for residents to provide feedback on these proposals and provide any additional thoughts they may have:

  • Grenfell Projects Fund Round 2 will roll out in spring 2021. There is no certainty that the Covid-19 vaccine roll out will be completed before autumn; residents need funding for projects now.
  • Projects will need to tell us if they can be delivered online, or whether they need to be delivered face-to-face. This will be clarified during the selection process and communicated transparently.

We propose to add a Covid-19 theme to the existing six themes:

  1. Wellbeing for children, young people or adults
  2. Educational opportunities to increase skills, knowledge, enterprise and qualifications
  3. Social and cultural events that bring communities together and provide information to increase connections across the community, including initiatives to reduce isolation for older people
  4. Community safety that increases the safety of everyone
  5. Activities for young people
  6. Food growing/greening and food-based activities that increase communities coming together and enhances the local environment

Your response to this survey will inform the next round of the Grenfell Projects Fund.

This survey will run for a period of six weeks, and will close on Thursday 1 April 2021.
