City Bridge Trust: Small Grant

City Bridge Trust Small Grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 per year are available for a maximum of five years, for the following areas of work:

  • Greening and growing projects which bring communities together and improve the local environment.
  • A project which enables disabled people and/or older people who are disadvantaged to actively participate in the arts, sports and health and wellbeing opportunities.

You can apply for Capital funding, Revenue funding, or a mixture of the two.

Based on grants made to date, we have awarded between £1,500 and £50,000 for work under this strand. The average award size has been £18,000. Please note that these figures are illustrative only, and that we can award less than these amounts depending on the applications we receive. Small grants are capped at £10,000 per year.

A revenue grant cannot be for more than 50% of the organisation’s annual turnover, based on the most recent set of accounts (as opposed to future budgets/forecasts).

This programme is open to groups working in London with an income of less than £100,000, as shown in the organisation’s latest annual accounts.

Applicants will need to be one of the following:

  • Registered charity
  • Registered Community Interest Company
  • Registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation
  • Charitable company
  • Exempt or excepted charity
  • Registered charitable industrial and provident society or charitable Bencom

Applicants will need to be able to provide a least one set of legally compliant accounts.

They will also be required to provide an organisational budget for the current financial year and a forecast for the coming year if your financial year begins within three months of the application’s submission.
