Grants Programmes for the Waterloo and South Bank Area

SoWN is delighted to have been asked to run two grants programmes specifically intended to benefit residents and communities of this area.


The London Eye Community Chest is to be re-launched, after last running in 2016. A fund of £60,000 will be available, in grants from £1,000 to £10,000, for projects that help to build community and strengthen community resilience in the Waterloo and South Bank area. This grant programme is currently in development and will be launched later in 2024.


Earlier in 2024 we launched   the Waterloo and South Bank Health and Wellbeing Grant Fund 2024, funded by Lambeth Together. This fund, applications to which are now closed, supports projects that promote the general health and wellbeing of people living in the area covered by this map. 12 projects have been given grants ranging from £2,000 to £8,000 and include:

  • Gardening for wellbeing on Millennium Green

  • Pilates for older residents in China Walk

  • Digital skills training at various venues in the area

  • Engaging excluded young people through dance

  • Upgrading facilities at the Webber St Day Centre for rough sleepers

  • Support for neurodivergent children and their parents at Coin St Neighbourhood Centre

  • Free football sessions for children at Colombo Centre

  • Focused support for children with special educational needs

  • Expert support for a local sewing and social group

  • Wellbeing club activities at St John’s Waterloo

  • Story-telling workshops for people experiencing structural inequalities

  • Support for parents and care-givers in low-income households, at Oasis Hub

We wish all these projects every success and look forward to reporting back next year on the impact these projects have had. ​
