We Make Camden Kit

Have a great idea for your community? The We Make Camden Kit gives money and support to Camden citizens and community groups who want to start projects or initiatives.

A panel of Camden residents from across the borough decides who is awarded funding, with support from Camden Giving and Camden Council. We’ve already awarded over 90 grants, so why not apply!

Join the We Make Camden Citizens Group

We Make Camden Citizens’ Group is a new initiative launched by Camden to get a better understanding of the lives of our residents.

What does it involve? Surveys, phone interviews, focus groups and more. For most of these you’ll be rewarded with payment for your time equivalent to London Living Wage.

If you’d like to take part, just complete this online questionnaire or email participation@camden.gov.uk with your name and address and we’ll post a paper questionnaire to you.

Join or start a food co-op

Cooperation Town is a network of food co-ops, where members pool together to buy food in bulk and access surplus food from supermarkets. Each household pays £3 to £10 a week and gets about five times what they pay for in value – saving up to 40% on weekly food costs.

“If you want to join or start a food co-op, we can help. Get in touch at cooperation.town or visit our co-op in Gospel Oak.” Shiri Shalmy, Organiser at Cooperation Town
