Racial justice fund - what we fund

Since we launched the racial justice fund in 2022, we've provided funding to nine Black and minority-led organisations across London.

All of these projects are fighting to tackle racial and economic injustice in London. The racial justice fund is joint-funded with City Bridge Foundation.

CommUNITY Barnet

CommUNITY Barnet is researching the barriers currently faced by local Black businesses. This work will inform a campaign to increase investment and support of Black social enterprises and entrepreneurs.

Latin Elephant

Latin Elephant will focus on building the power of migrant and racialised communities by creating a partnership with other migrant, minoritised community-led organisations in London. The team will support and work with other community-led organisations campaigning against the impact of gentrification on migrant businesses and ensuring that race is on the agenda of the London plan.

Metronomes Steel Orchestra

Metronomes Steel Orchestra is one of the longest running steel bands in the UK and has been a key architect of Carnival Arts in London. We’re funding it to identify the Black community’s hidden and lost economic value from the Carnival, and to design new organisational models that recognise the importance of black culture for the black community, supporting self-governance and intersectionally just economic outcomes. Find out more about this project.

Money A+E

Money A+E is a Black-led social enterprise, providing accessible money advice and education. We’re funding a partnership with Fair Money Advice that will focus on overcoming barriers facing Black and minoritised Londoners from accessing financial products and services, while also increasing representation within financial services jobs.

Runnymede Trust

We're funding Runnymede Trust to conduct research into barriers to home ownership, and how this stifles economic growth for Black Londoners. This will be used to bring forward policy ideas informed by first-hand experience.

Stour Trust CIC

We’re funding Stour Trust CIC to support their work to increase the number of buildings and assets owned and managed by Black and minoritised communities. Through this work, Stour Trust will create long-term and lasting impact in boosting resource and asset ownership of Black and minoritised communities across London. Find out more about this project.

Southall Community Alliance

The Southall Community Alliance is as an umbrella organisation of more than 70 community groups supporting local groups. More than 90% of their users are Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic. The team will be using our grant to build an understanding of how to build rental income and asset related projects for the benefit of Southall’s minority communities.

The New Black Film Club Collective

The New Black Film Collective’s aims to become the UK’s leading agency for Black film. We’re funding the team to build on an existing campaign with the NASUWT (Teacher’s Union), calling for action to tackle the pay and progression gap between Black teachers and their white counterparts.

Tree Shepherd

Tree Shepherd is engaging Black-owned businesses, particulary those led by women, in areas affected by regeneration. This will include creating representative groups, to ensure Black and minoritised communities have a say in local planning and procurement decisions. Find out more about this project.
