City Bridge Trust - Connecting the Capital

Grants are available to not-for-profit organisations that are working for the benefit of London inhabitants and which make London's communities stronger, more resilient and thriving.

The scheme distributes around £20 million a year through three different grants schemes over a five-year period (2018-2023). It aims to benefit people living in Greater London by tackling social and financial inequality, leading to stronger, more resilient communities where local people have more access to facilities and more involvement in the way their communities are run.

The two other schemes in this programme are Positive Transitions and Advice and Support. All three schemes are delivered under two main priorities: Reducing Inequalities and Enabling Voice and Representation.

Grants can be used for either revenue costs or capital costs (not both).

· Revenue grants can be for up to five years and applications for core funding are encouraged. There is no minimum or maximum revenue grant but large grants will not be awarded to small organisations. A revenue grant cannot amount to more than 50% of an organisation’s turnover/income in any one year.

· Capital grants for access improvements will be for a maximum of £100,000 and will only be considered for improvements to existing community buildings (not new build developments).

· Grants of up to £5,000 may be awarded for disability access audits and disability equalities training or consultancy to help organisations obtain the best advice to develop their proposed projects.

· Funding for salary costs is usually at a level of no more than one full-time equivalent post.

Small grants of £1,000 to £10,000 per year for up to three years are available for organisations with an annual income of less than £100,000. These are covered in a separate entry.
