Expense policies


Our host normally makes payments on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, however the cutoff point for them is now 1pm on these days. Any expenses that are submitted after 1pm on those days will be picked up in the next batch of scheduled payments.


To claim from the fund you’ll need some proof of address to show you live in SE15.
This can be a utility bill, a letter from the council, some photo ID, or something else that shows you live in SE15.
Your name, SE15 address and recent date needs to be visible
Only admins will see this, and use it to verify you live in SE15 and are eligible for the fund.

Take a photo of your proof of address and have this ready before you start your application.

We will approve up to £50 per applicant each month from Mutual Aid volunteers in need of reimbursement for supporting neighbours in financial need who, for example, may be isolating due to COVID-19 and cannot do their grocery shopping. However we ask that you please do support your neighbours to access the fund themselves directly where possible. 

Our ‘fiscal host’, the Social Change Agency, makes payments every Monday, Wednesday and Friday- though we cannot guarantee a time. Please take this into account when you apply for funds, as you may not receive it immediately. Make an application by clicking Submit Expense at the top of the SE15 Community Fund page or try clicking here.

Click Reimbursement and in the box below enter an 'expense title' name - (please put the name of the SE15 mutual aid group you are working with).

Give each receipt a description (again, no personal information), the date of purchase, and the amount on the receipt to be reimbursed. 

Please also upload your proof of address as a receipt. Put today’s date and add the amount as GBP 0.01

Select your Payout method: Either PayPal Or, if you want the £50 directly into a bank account, select New custom payout method and put your bank details in Info.
