Funding for improving social security

Londoners should be protected by a social security system that always enables them to make ends meet, even when circumstances change.

Our impact goals

Under this priority area we have two impact goals. These are the changes we want to see in London by 2030. We want to fund work that moves towards these two goals:

1. Improving social security

We want a social security system that guarantees Londoners, including children, never have to go without essentials such as housing, food, clothing, or heating.

Under this goal we'll fund campaigns, research and policy work focused on improving our social security system so that it better meets the needs of Londoners.

Find out more about what we want to fund under this goal.

2. Increasing benefits take-up

We want to see significantly more people accessing the benefits they are entitled to.

Under this goal we'll fund welfare rights advice, specialist legal advice, and innovations to address the lack of uptake.

Find out more about what we want to fund under this goal.
