City Bridge Trust supports charitable activity across Greater
London. The City of London
Corporation is the sole trustee of City Bridge Trust and
members of its Court of Common Council form the Trust’s Grants
Committee. The Trust’s grants team is based within the City of
London’s main offices at the Guildhall.
Our new grants programmes, Investing in Londoners, are now
open for applications.
We are pleased to announce the opening of the City of London
Growing Localities Awards 2013/14. A total of £2,500 prize money is
being offered to not-for-profit organisations for projects
which use nature to enhance and improve local communities and the
lives of vulnerable or socially excluded people.
Arts organisations and arts activity are attractive to young people
as they offer the chance to be creative, challenging and inspiring.
In turn, the Arts sector has a long history of offering
apprenticeships and internships, valuable opportunities for young
people to get a foot on the work ladder. We are
now following the lead of the Arts Council's Creative
Employment Programme (CEP) in supporting Arts organisations to
offer apprenticeships to young people
We were proud to take part in this year's Lord Mayor’s Show,
marking the election of Alderman Fiona Woolf as the 686th
Lord Mayor of the City of London, and only the second woman to hold
the position. Over 150 floats took part representing a diverse
range of organisations and institutions, including ancient Livery
Companies, army bands, charities and leading City-based businesses.
We are pleased to announce a major new investment in London youth
clubs, with voluntary-led clubs set to receive up to £7,000 from
the Trust each once they have achieved the Gold Level of the London
Youth Quality Mark. The investment will enable clubs to
transform the lives of thousands of young people in London.
