The SE15 Community Fund offers financial help to people located in the SE15 postcode, who may be struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic or other circumstances. This fund can be used for any purpose. There is neither judgement nor is there an obligation to pay back the money. We believe in helping our neighbours when they are in need - on the basis of solidarity, not charity.

Neighbours can apply for up to £50 at a time. Take only what you need, so that others can also get help. Each neighbour can receive cash up to once per month - this limit is intended to ensure that as many people as possible get the help they need. We are always looking to increase the size and frequency of grants, but can only do so in line with the donations we receive.

When uploading your personal data into this fund, your data is covered by the privacy policy of the Open Collective, who are based in the US, and as such data protection is covered by US law rather than UK and EU data laws. Their full privacy policy can be found here: https://opencollective.com/privacypolicy . Any personal data received directly by the fund will be handled in compliance with current GDPR regulations.

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.

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.
