Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We are very keen to have an open dialougue with the sector and would encourage all prospective grantees to follow us on Twitter @CityBridgeTrust to be alerted of future events where you can engage with us. We are keen to utilise a full assets approach to our grant-making, so we really value your feedback regarding giving more than money and convening.

A fair and thoughtful funder but one which needs lots of well thought through information and data. Investing the time to do this properly is necessary.

Have an open and honest dialogue about your work and the challenges your organisation is facing, as City Bridge really understand these and the relationship is enhanced by open dialogue. Make sure you have thought out and have in order organisational processes as well, such as Safeguarding and other key policies.
