New Community Connections Grant Scheme - open now!

With the decision not to hold the Festival of Communities this year, Queen Mary is providing an alternative opportunity for Queen Mary staff and students to develop and sustain relationships with local residents and community groups through the Community Connections grant scheme.

The scheme is looking for activities that bring people together – generating conversations around shared experiences within our east London communities. These could be (but aren't limited to) providing activity packs for local families to complete at home, a desire to bring neighbours in a building/street together to share an experience, planning for a celebratory event when COVID-19 restrictions allow or responding to practical community needs.
