Sadiq Khan pledges £400,000 for community projects

The mayor of London has pledged to support 25 community-led projects with £400,000 through his Crowdfund London initiative.

The projects have been selected from nearly 80 ideas from community groups who want to regenerate their local areas.

Each one will receive up to £40,000, and they are part of a larger programme which will invest up to £4m in community-led projects across the capital over the next four years.

Run in partnership with London-based civic crowdfunding website Spacehive and backed by the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP), the initiative encourages communities to come together and propose ideas to regenerate their local areas with the support of City Hall.

‘Crowdfund London represents a pioneering way for Londoners to drive regeneration of their local area from the grass roots up,’ said Mayor Khan.

‘It is inspiring a new generation of civic leaders and helping them unlock creative and innovative ideas for their communities.

‘Today I’m pledging support to an extraordinary range of local groups for projects that will help strengthen their local places and make London an even greater city.’

‘I’m calling on Londoners to join me and help make these projects a success,’ he added.
