Lambeth Mutual Aid Fund

We are a mutual aid fund for Lambeth redistributing income in the form of monthly no-strings-attached grants for those in financial hardship.


We are a group of people in Lambeth, who came together during the Covid-19 pandemic to share support across the borough. Since 2021 we’ve focused on redistributing a solidarity fund to help people meet rising costs of living. For more information, see the How We Work section of our website.

We give out monthly grants of up to £30 on a no-strings-attached basis, which you can apply for via this form. The solidarity fund  is currently closed for applications while we share funds with everyone who applied in March. We had roughly 150 applications so we don't expect to open the fund again until June.  

Please do not request money directly on this page. 

If you'd like to be added to the email list to be told when the fund is opening, or if you'd like to become part of the solidarity fund group, please email us at [email protected]
