We need your input, your opinion it’s important.
If you have a bright idea or burning issue that you think the Forum should take up, please share it with the rest of us. If you are feeling daunted by issues, you are not alone – but maybe we can call in expert advice or at least pool our knowledge. Several local groups came together to set up the Forum, so we can call on a range of contacts and expertise. If you are happy to share your email address with other members, let us know, otherwise e-mails will continue to go out as blind copies for privacy.

The class is every Wednesday morning in Vauxhall, 9.15-11.15am, at St Anne’s church on Kennington Road. It is for any levels of English – all will be accommodated.

Looking for funding?
Local groups and organisations with great ideas to make their neighbourhoods and communities even better places to live are invited to apply for funding to turn their ideas into reality.
Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations, with an income of less than £350,000 a year or an average of £350,000 over two years, seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years.
We’re looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. By small, we mean just a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages.
We’re also looking for great ideas from communities of interest. By this we mean a group of people who have things in common and wish to come together to address something that is important to them. These ideas could be based in one neighbourhood, or cover a wider area.
Applying is easy. It’s an online process with a step by step guide from start to finish.
