An Exciting Funding Opportunity in the New Year!

Swan Foundation, the charitable arm of Swan Housing Association has been working with a range of local partners to enhance and change the lives of communities living in East London and Essex. Since being established in 2009, the charity has worked tirelessly to offer a range of projects and initiatives that support local people, help tackle unemployment, raise capacity and improve the health and wellbeing of those communities.

The Foundation is currently inviting grant applications up to £5k, from local organisations for the projects that meet our priorities:

  • Relief of financial hardship and unemployment for the benefit of the public
  • The advancement of education and training
  • The provision of recreational facilities in the interests of social welfare with the object of improving the conditions of life

We have a quick decision making process and you will be notified on the outcome of your application by the end of February 2019. The deadline for this funding application is at 5.00pm, 4 February 2019.
