United St Saviour’s Charity normally operates two open grants programmes – the Large Grants Programme and the Small Grants Programme. Both of these programmes focus on following themes:

  • Strong, resilient communities: that communities in Southwark are inclusive, strong and supportive of each other.
  • Positive ageing: older people in Southwark are experiencing a great quality of life.
  • Levelling the playing field: that all residents have the same life opportunities and chances.

Large Grants Programme

The Large Grants Programme normally opens for applications twice a year. The financial impact of the covid-19 pandemic has hit our income streams quite hard. However we have been able to open the Large Grants Programme for 2022/23 to online Expression of Interest (Flexi Grant) in early September 2021 (for proposals to start from April 2022). The closing deadline for EOI is noon on 12 October 2021. Please see our website news page for further details.

Small Grants Programme

From 2021, the Small Grants Programme will open twice a year. The first round opened between 23 April and 4 June 2021. A second round of the Small Grants Programme 2021/22 will open on 24 September 2021 for activities delivered during Winter 2021-22. An announcement will be on our website news page when the Programme launches.
