Bridging Divides – Our Draft Funding Strategy


We are delighted to announce the publication of our Draft Funding Strategy for 2018-23: Bridging Divides. This was presented to our Committee on the 6th February and will now go out for further consultation.

This represents the next stage in our Strategic Review, conducted every five years to assess the work of the Trust in fulfilling its vision of a fairer London.  This process ensures that we stay relevant and alive to the changing needs of Londoners.

Along with the Draft Strategy, we have also now published all of the research undertaken so far as part of the review, as well as the full CBT Committee paper and the presentation given to our Committee. Finally, we have produced a Frequently Asked Questions page dedicated to the Strategic Review which we will continue to update with common queries about this process and what it means for grantees.

We would now like to hear your views on the draft strategy, and invite you to complete our online survey. Alternatively you can email your feedback to Sufina Ahmad, Head of Strategic Review, at or tweet us us @CityBridgeTrust using the hashtag #BridgingLondon.

Once the next stage of consultation has been completed, we hope to announce the final Funding Strategy in late 2017, with a view to launching in 2018.
