The projects chosen were from a number of applications submitted. A community panel was convened, with feedback from local authority officers and staff from Derwent London, to contribute to the decision-making process. The successful entries have been selected on the basis that they will offer positive benefits – from employment to environmental, social, cultural, arts and health.
John Davies, Head of Sustainability at Derwent London, commented:
“Now in its ninth year, our Community Fund continues to support much needed projects. We received one of our largest number of applications to date and learnt about the work of so many incredible groups supporting their local communities. All nine selected organisations are committed to bringing about positive change to their local community and have created projects in response to a need identified by the prospective beneficiaries."
