Grant making

Bridging Divides

The Trust currently awards around £20m per year to charitable causes in London. The majority of these grants are made under our Bridging Divides scheme, which has three programmes listed below:

Connecting the Capital

Positive Transitions

Advice and Support


There are currently no closing dates for applications for these programmes. However, please note that those making applications in April/May may not get a decision before September as our priority is to clear those applications already received under the Investing in Londoners programme.


Before making an application to us, you should read carefully the information in Who we fund and What we fund. You might also wish to read our FAQs which contains information on our grant making and common questions. If, having read these pages, you wish to apply to us, please go to How to apply for information on our application process and the Eligibility Quiz which you must complete to access our online application form.


Along with the above, we also run one-off grant programmes, such as our Stepping Stones Fund which offers grants to organisations looking to become investment ready.
