London Churches Refugee Fund Grant Information


Please note that LCRF is a ‘small grants’ fund with typical awards between £250 - £750 each round, payable to charities / organisations (we do not pay money direct to individuals).  For the autumn 2017 grants round the upper limit on applications was raised to £1,000.  For spring 2018 applications we will again accept requests for up to £1,000 but you are warned that the figure may be scaled back if resources are insufficient.


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


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


Round 24 (Spring 2018) is now open for applications.  Please download the forms below, applications must reach us by Monday 30th April 2018.  The form has changed somewhat so please do not use old copies!  Our email system is now working properly again so applications should be emailed to, 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
