The Office for Civil Society has granted £2.2m of direct funding for the London Community Foundation's 'Dispossessed Fund' since 2010.

This fund is also supported by the Evening Standard, with nearly £18 million raised in total so far. This fund has supported hundreds of community groups across the capital to build social infrastructure in areas of poverty, help communities take control of issues that are affecting them and to tackle specific problems such as gang culture among young people.
