What is LEAP and what is the LEAP Community Award?

Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP) aims to improve the lives of children aged 0-3 years old and their families in the four wards of Coldharbour, Stockwell, Tulse Hill, and Vassall.

Groundwork London are working in partnership with LEAP to administer the LEAP Community Award.

The award is to help improve young children’s diet and nutrition, social and emotional development, and communication and language through community run activities for children aged 0-3 years old and their families.

Awards will support a broad range of projects, from family veg growing in small outdoor space to joint birthday parties, performance sessions to art and craft sessions.

Who can apply?

Awards are available for each of the four Lambeth LEAP wards of:

  • Stockwell
  • Vassall
  • Coldharbour
  • Tulse Hill

Parents, community groups and community members can apply if their proposed activities meet the following criteria:

  • Are for families living in the LEAP wards (Stockwell, Vassall, Coldharbour, and Tulse Hill) with a child aged 0-3. Please use this link to ensure your project delivery address is within one of the four Lambeth wards
  • Will contribute to improving the diet and nutrition, social and emotional development, or communication and language of LEAP children aged 0-3
  • Free for all participants
  • Will benefit at least ten LEAP children

All applications should include plans for how activities could be continued once the award money has been used.

We welcome applications from existing groups looking to strengthen their current activities or from new groups setting up new activities. We particularly welcome applications from parents and community members living in the LEAP area.
