As a result of high levels of demand for funding from this funding pot, we anticipate that Sunday 31 May 2020 will be the final submission date. If your application is in progress, please make sure to submit it by 23:59 on Sunday 31 May.


Direct Line Group We are delighted to announce £170,000 in emergency funding for local charities and community organisations, thanks to support from Direct Line Group.

The fund aims to provide financial support to organisations working locally in Bromley that are either delivering COVID-19 front line services, or whose ability to operate has been impacted by the measures put in place to stem the COVID-19 pandemic.

This grant fund is intended to provide urgent financial support, to assist:

  • Costs incurred by an impact on service delivery due to increased demand (i.e. costs you are incurring now), AND/OR
  • The effects that Coronavirus is expected to have on your organisation’s financial sustainability over the coming six months

Grants of up to £10,000 will be available. We anticipate that demand will far exceed the amount of grant funding available, so applicants should only ask for funds that can be clearly justified as urgent against the criteria above.

Eligible applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with a panel sitting and making decisions on a weekly basis until further notice.

Applications submitted by 23:59 on Sunday will be put forward and assessed at weekly panel meetings held each Wednesday.

The intention is to respond to eligible and successfully completed applications within 14 days of application.
