King’s Civic Challenge Funding Secured!

Eight projects co-created with partners from King’s College London’s home boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster have won funding to deliver positive change in King’s local communities


King’s students, staff and community partners from across the home boroughs came together at Science Gallery London on the Guy’s Campus for the King’s Civic Challenge Grand Final, celebrating distinctive new ideas that have the potential to transform local communities.

Responding to issues that were identified by the community partners themselves, King’s Civic Challenge invites participants to work together to develop collaborative and creative solutions to some of the issues facing communities in Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster.

The groups have been developing their proposals since December 2021, supported by a coach from King’s alumni community, alongside a programme of workshops and training. Teams submitted written proposals and video pitches in early April and a panel of judges from across our home boroughs selected the winning teams.
