The Resilience Fund is the LEAP’s £1 million challenge fund to incentivise innovators to address socially impactful issues facing London, help us emerge stronger from COVID-19 and ensure the capital is prepared for future disruptive challenges.
The Mayor of London and LEAP have been at the forefront of empowering communities through civic crowdfunding. This approach has been used to pledge money and support to a wide range of community-led projects from street art, to community gardens and kitchens, to workshops open to everyone.
The Mayor of London is launching LEAP’s new open innovation programme that places design-led innovation at the heart of London’s Recovery, in partnership with the Design Council.
The pandemic has significant ramifications for the future of how workspaces will be serving entrepreneurs and businesses post Covid. In its various forms, workspace could be a vital tool in helping London to recover from the impact of vacancy rates, from small units on local neighbourhood high streets, to towering office blocks within the CAZ.
LEAP invites local partnerships to bring forward and co-design innovative high street strategies and proposals to support London’s economic recovery.
