We’ve identified five key priorities where our grants can make the biggest difference to the local community within the areas of HIV support, prevention and awareness:

  • Improve Health and Wellbeing
  • Reduce loneliness, stigma and social isolation
  • Grow capacity and sustainability of the charity
  • Provide support in time of a crisis
  • Create innovative and positive interactions with young people
  • Projects that help to create community connections, particularly with BAME community groups
  • Projects that are focused on face to face support in Covid safe environments, rather than relying on online

To be considered for funding, your activity should meet at least one of the above priority themes.

We look forward to hearing from all our local charities and groups, but are particularly interested to hear from those with innovative ideas based around our key themes, as detailed above.

We are especially keen to invite applications from groups and charities that haven’t connected with us before and would like support for initiatives that promote and champion partnership working, bring like-minded groups together to strengthen ambition and, by working together, reach wider and more diverse sections of our community.

We have 3 different funding streams.  Check out which fits best with your requirements...

Main Grants

Main grant funding is available to applicants seeking more than £1,500, but less than £10,000 for activities and projects that focus on HIV support, awareness and prevention projects in SW London or where SW London residents are welcome.  Typically these would run for a period of 12 months (although there is some flexibility). Our main grants rounds run twice a year.

The amount which can be applied for is restricted to £10,000 per annum per project.   Applications for more than £10,000 should be discussed with us prior to submission. Please contact us for more information. E: [email protected] or call 07970 349740.

Multi-Year Funding Grants

We are committed to supporting organisations with funding for up to three consecutive years for projects which impact on two or more of our funding priorities and seek to respond to the longer-term needs of the HIV sector.  Please contact us for more information. 

Fast-Track Grants

Fast Track grants are for amounts up to £1,500 to deliver projects and initiatives.  Applicants usually receive  a decision within 10 working days. Fast Track applications can be applied for at any time throughout the year and at present can also be for amounts in excess of £1,500 to o combat hardship in the face of coronavirus.

Grants for Individuals

In addition to the funding distributed through our main grants rounds, Wandsworth Oasis works in partnership with River House Trust to support London residents who are suffering hardship.  River House Trust manages the Wandsworth Oasis Hardship Fund to provide small, one-off grants for such things as bedding, furniture, clothing, heating appliances and white goods such as microwaves and fridges, minor funeral expenses etc. Please contact River House to discuss eligibility.  Referrals from local agencies are required. 

Our grants programme is now open for applications.  The deadline is 15th January 2021 to apply with decisions being made in March.
