Peabody Community Fund
The Peabody Community Grants programme awards grants to charities, resident and community organisations working for the benefit of people who live in the areas in which Peabody operates and, in particular, the proposals must directly benefit Peabody residents.
The Peabody Community Fund is able to support activities benefitting residents of all ages and priority will be given to:
- Organisations/projects addressing the needs of the most disadvantaged members of the community
- Peabody resident-led projects. If an applying organisation is not resident-led, they will need to demonstrate strong connections with local residents, strong partnership working in the locality, a commitment to the locality after the proposed project is complete, and a clear understanding of community needs
- Youth-led projects focusing on benefiting young people under the age of 24
