ABOUT THE PROGRAMME - PHASE one
The grant programme phase one has funded civil society equity-led groups to deliver targeted awareness-raising and related informational activity in trusted community settings for London’s most under-registered and under-represented communities, those most likely to be impacted by the changes.

GLA analysis has highlighted the following groups to be most impacted:
