Cloudesley Partner grants

Cloudesley provides small grants to Islington residents with health challenges and disabled residents who are facing financial hardship. We distribute grants through local voluntary organisations (known as Cloudesley Partners).

During 2023, over 1,500 Cloudesley Partner welfare grants were made to local people

How to apply

20 Cloudesley Partners distribute this funding on behalf of the charity. All the Partners support vulnerable people across the Borough. You can find a list of the current Cloudesley Partners, including their contact details, below.

If you wish to apply for a grant – either for yourself or for someone else – please look at the list below and contact the most appropriate partner agency. You can contact Kevin Turner, Grants Manager, on 020 7697 4201 if you would like us to put you in touch with an appropriate organisation or if you need further help.

Please note that the Cloudesley Partner organisations make the decisions on grants. Being signposted to a partner by Cloudesley is not a recommendation for funding.
