Great funder that seems to understand that it takes time and resources to apply for grants and does not request unnecessary information mapped against pages and pages of guidance and templates. The evaluation for this funder (through London Community Response Fund) was light touch and made us want to provide more information which could be sent in a format that we as an organisation find useful for the developing the work.

All funding applications at our centre are processed by volunteers., my advise to them is that City Bridge Trust listens and supports Londoners to address issues affecting them. However, it's always best to read all funding guidelines carefully.

Our organisation hosted a successful application for another community group as well one for our own project. The application form was fairly straight forward - the 3 hours time was for the preparation of information which was quickly transferred across. Staff spoken with have been very supportive, particularly regarding having to delay activities during pandemic times. Thank you so much City Bridge Trust!
