London Funders, working with London Voluntary Service Council (LVSC) and Greater London Volunteering (GLV) and others, has commissioned research to look into the future of civil society infrastructure in London with funding from City Bridge Trust.
City Bridge Trust and its programme partner UBS have opened the second round of the Stepping Stones Fund. First launched in November 2014, the programme provides targeted support in the form of grants and risk finance to enterprising charitable organisations that wish to prepare themselves for social investment in order to improve their social outcomes.
Why would a charity want to become listed on the London Stock
Exchange? Can new financing options be helpful to assist the most
marginalised members of our society? Golden Lane Housing is an
inspiring organisation, whose example may answer those questions.
It is an example of commitment to social impact and ambition to
help more people by learning to use different financing options.
We are pleased to announce that City Bridge Trust has approved
extra funding to support work with hard-to-reach young people, by
awarding £1 million each year over the next decade to youth
charity Prince's Trust. This grant will finance projects
intended to benefit the most socially-deprived communities in the
capital - especially young people not in education, employment or
Our Grants Committee meets six times a year. Lists of the recent grants awarded are available here.
