Funding for community projects

The Lyle’s Local Fund

The Lyle Local Fund is open once a year. We are due to be back in Autumn/Winter 2020. 

The Lyle’s Local Fund is a £25,000 community fund, generously provided by local Newham institution, Tate and Lyle. It supports projects that help to create local communities in Newham that are safe, prosperous and healthy.

Who can apply?

The community fund is open to not-for-profit organisations, such as social enterprises, schools, charities and community groups, who are based in Newham and whose work benefits the residents of Newham.
Tate & Lyle Sugars has a long history of supporting the local community of Newham, dating back to the 19th Century and the philanthropy of co-founders Henry Tate and Abram Lyle. Today, The Lyle’s Local Fund complements the company’s existing community engagement programme of support for local charities, volunteering and in-kind support.
