    You can apply from NOW!
    How much can I apply for?
    Our full fund is for £15000, you can apply up to £2500 for individual projects, but remember the lower the amount for applications, the more we can fund
    What is the deadline
    We are working to a deadline of Thursday the 21st of September at 11pm
    This gives you over 8 weeks to apply – however please don’t delay getting your applications in.
    if you have the perfect project you want to apply for – do it as soon as possible – it really helps us to not get all
    applications in on deadline day.

    Before I make my application, what should I do?

      1 – Read, re-read and read again the guidance notes
      These notes are available to view and download HERE Guidance-Notes-and-important-information-Catford-South-Local-Assembly-Funding-2017-18 they have full details of the priorities for Catford south
      2 – Please use the correct application form
      Download the application form HERE Catford-South-Assembly-Fund-Application-Form-2017-18
      I’m afraid we can’t take applications submitted in other formats as these forms need to be standard for all 18 wards in Lewisham. Please send it back as a word document – NOT as a PDF
      3 – If you have the means please do fill it in using a computer.
      Hand written applications are very difficult to process. However as Catford South fully embraces being an age and dementia friendly community we understand if you have to hand write it. However, we ask that you get hand written forms in early so they can be typed up and that there is an email contact on it
      4 – Myself and Barbara are here to guide you and offer general advice
      Barbara as part of her development remit will also be able to help you with your application if needed. you can email Barbara on:

    When I apply what will happen next?

      1 – When you email me your application you will get a receipt email. Please save this. If for any reason your do not receive a receipt email then – do contact me again to confirm I got it.
      2 – Once all applications are in – they will be assessed and put forward by the coordinating group. Anyone from the community can be a part of this group, so if you are interested in joining please contact me or Barbara
      3 – If you application is successful you will need to come to the assembly meeting in the autumn to present your project to the assembly and provide us with 250 words detailing your project for the funding booklet
