City Bridge Trust is seeking support providers to help us deliver The Bridge Programme, our programme of Funder Plus support for our grantees which we will be launching shortly.
We are looking to build a pool of providers who between them can cover the areas we have identified as associated with running a charitable organisation. These include governance, leadership & management, managing money & resources, external communications, and assessing outcomes & impact. However, we are also interested to hear from providers with different skills & areas of focus which may be of interest.
The delivery of The Bridge Programme will be co-ordinated & managed by Rocket Science. Meanwhile, Locality and Cranfield Trust will act as Connectors who will carry out the diagnostics, provide the connection with provider organisations, and hold funding to cover costs for providers.
To ensure anonymity, grantee organisations will register directly through an online portal operated by Rocket Science who will then assign organisations randomly between the two Connector organisations. Following an initial assessment & diagnosis of support needs, providers will then be matched based on their areas of expertise.
For more information including how to register as a provider, please see the Bridge Programme page here.
Information on how City Bridge Trust grantees can apply to receive support under this programme will be announced later this year.
