Support for High Streets: Thriving High Streets Fund

Support for High Streets: Thriving High Streets Fund

We've launched the fund to help high streets adapt to a range of challenging economic factors. The aim is they will become thriving, adaptable spaces that are fit for the future. We're looking for inspirational ideas, brought to life through projects in the borough's high streets or town centres, and designed to help shops and businesses to grow and thrive once again.

We want projects to attract more people to Southwark's high streets and town centres, and to increase the amount of money spent in the area.

How much money you can apply for

You can apply for between £1,000 and £25,000. However, applications over £25,000 may be considered under special circumstances.
