Small Projects and Equipment Fund - opening soon

23 September 2019

Last week, our Chair, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, announced the opening of the next round of a LEAP fund that supports small projects to deliver inspiring learning environments.

Round 2 of the Small Projects and Equipment Fund will open on 7 October with £3.75m funding available.

In Round 1 of the Fund, a diverse array of projects received support, leading to community kitchens, virtual learning spaces and inclusive creches to teach childcare skills and provide care facilities for the children of adult learners.

Through Round 2, we want to continue to support proposals which deliver dynamic, innovative and inclusive learning environments.

Applicants will be able to request from £25,000 up to £300,000 for capital investment in equipment and small projects.
