London Catalyst is an independent grant-making trust. We provide funding for charities and not-for-profit organisations to deliver projects and improve services. Our aims are twofold: to alleviate the effects of poverty, and to improve the health and well-being of Londoners, in particular people with mental and physical illness, long term health conditions and/or disabilities.
‘The Charity is established to relieve poverty, sickness, disability and infirmity among persons resident in the area bounded by the M25 London Orbital Motorway… by supporting and working with other charitable organisations… and by providing grants to assist individuals and organisations for the aforementioned purposes.’
Since 1873 we have held an annual ‘Hospital-Sunday’ Appeal to raise funds to provide food, clothing and other basic items to people leaving hospital and those living in the community who are destitute and coping with chronic ill-health. The money we raise through the appeal supports our Samaritan grants. You can support our appeal by clicking on the ‘donate’ button above.
