Place Makers Fund


The Place Makers Fund is a key part of the L&Q Foundation’s work to deliver their strategy. Led by the Successful Places team, the Place Makers Fund is looking to fund projects that help the L&Q Foundation deliver their aims, with a focus on Successful Places.

The Place Makers Fund priority areas are intended to ensure local communities who maybe struggling are able to access funding and continue to support and provide a vital service to vulnerable people in the community.

The L&Q priority areas are:  

  • Activities for older people
  • Education
  • Food poverty
  • Those defined as vulnerable
  • Health & well-being programme
  • Opportunities for young people
