GLA Message to LCEF Recipients

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the GLA recognises that these are exceptional times and that grantees like yourselves might need to be supported differently. Therefore, please can you let them know if you foresee any issues with your LCEF-funded project because of the Covid-19 outbreak.

For example:

  • Delays
  • Projects getting cancelled
  • Vulnerability of your staff/clients
  • Cancellation of engagement events
  • Not being able to go on site anymore
  • Your own community group staff/volunteers self-isolating

The GLA want to assure you that they understand the need for flexibility at this time and are here to help wherever possible. If you have any questions, please let them know. For those who haven’t already, please do let the GLA know how they can support you during this difficult and what problems with your project you foresee as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The GLA have signed up to the statement published by London Funders outlining their commitment to working with grant-funded initiatives and supporting the vital work that you do. Please read the full statement for more details about our flexible approach to helping you.

Please email your experiences to: emma.gray@london.gov.uk and sylvia.baron@london.gov.uk
