London Churches Refugee Fund Grant Information


Please note that LCRF is a ‘small grants’ fund with typical awards between £300 - £800 each round, payable to charities / organisations (we do not pay money direct to individuals).  For Spring 2020 applications, the maximum grant for which you can apply is £800.  As before, applications may be scaled back if resources are insufficient.


The Fund’s Objects require us to support only work with destitute refugees and asylum-seekers in the London area.


Please download and read the Guidance Notes and Terms & Conditions carefully before completing your downloaded application form.


Round 28 (Spring 2020) is now open for applications.  The forms are accessed below and the closing date is 30th April 2020.  If you are applying for the first time, note in particular the requirements regarding Safeguarding Policies.


Applications should be emailed to [email protected], as shown also on the form.


A message from our Chair:


Dear Friend


On behalf of the London Churches Refugee Fund, I am pleased to invite organisations to apply for funds to support your work with asylum seekers and refugees. All applications must be made on the form that you can download from this site, and in accordance with our Terms & Conditions.


The Trustees are appreciative of the hugely difficult but valuable work that charities and community groups continue to perform and hope that the Fund will develop in such a way that it becomes a constant and reliable source of support.


With every good wish,


Revd Chris Brice


Chair of Trustees
