Access improvements to community buildings

Making Greater London’s community spaces more accessible: advice and grants to retrofit or improve buildings

With these grants, we want to increase the number of truly accessible and user-friendly community spaces across the capital.

Removing the barriers that can prevent people with disabilities and mental health conditions from entering community centres can help to open up a huge range of cultural, sporting and education, training and employment opportunities.

We have two available grants:

  1. Access Audits:
    Independent inspection reports that can either set out advice for how to improve a space’s accessibility, or review already-planned work. For properties with leases of at least five years.
  2. Retrofitting a building:
    Capital funding to undertake the improvements recommended by an Access Audit. For properties with leases of at least 10 years.
