Funding opportunities

As part of our commitment to deliver opportunities for local organisations, individuals and the community to play a vital role in regenerating the Royal Docks, we are launching several funding opportunities over the next five years. Some of our current opportunities are listed below.

Current Opportunities:

Royal Docks Good Growth Fund

The Royal Docks Good Growth Fund launched on 22 July 2020 and is now open to the public, private and third-sector organisations including local groups and charities which work closely with the local community. This includes creating workspaces, building skills, enhancing public spaces, and more. Modelled on the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s successful £70 million Good Growth Fund – which was launched in 2017 – the Royal Docks Good Growth Fund is targeted to the specific needs of the area and will help local organisations deliver projects to make the area a more attractive place to live, work, visit and invest.

Royal Docks Micro Research Grants for Artists

The Royal Docks team is looking for Newham-based artists, or artist collectives, interested in short research-based projects with an art outcome. The aim is to seed-fund new ideas and new ways of thinking about heritage in and around the Royal Dockss

This December we will award 3 grants of £900 each to artist(s) who suggest a broad research focus into communities, past or present, of Custom House, Beckton and Canning Town in Newham.
