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 current coronavirus crisis and the ensuing government advice is having a profound impact on the day to day life of us all. Due to this, L&Q has been working hard to repurpose our Place Makers Fund to support and invest in those communities where it is needed most during this pandemic. The Place Makers Fund priority areas have been revised to ensure local communities who maybe struggling are able to easily access funding and continue to support and provide a vital service to vulnerable people in the community.

The new priority areas will enable L&Q to meet the needs of their priority groups and achieve the greatest impact, these are:  

  • The over 70’s
  • Those defined as vulnerable
  • Foodbanks
  • Social welfare initiatives
  • Health and Wellbeing programmes
  • Addressing Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Supporting smaller locally focused charities and volunteer organisations
  • People affected by domestic abuse


The prospectus for the Place Makers Fund can be accessed here (please note, this prospectus was created before the above changes to the Place Makers Fund. As a result, the priority areas listed in the prospectus are different from the above).
