We were delighted that Direct Line Group approached Community Links Bromley (CLB) last year with a generous offer to provide emergency funding for voluntary and community groups and organisations in the borough who were facing unprecedented challenges as the COVID -19 pandemic grew. We also thank Clarion Housing Group for their significant contribution to our emergency funding.
The scheme launched in May with a grant pot of some £170,000. The scheme offered grants of up to £10,000 to support organisations in Bromley that were either delivering COVID-19 front line services, or whose ability to operate had been impacted by the measures put in place to stem the COVID-19 pandemic.
The scheme became quickly oversubscribed. Grants were distributed to 38 groups of various sizes covering a range of services across the borough.
This interim report summarises how the grants have been spent to date and the positive impact that the funding has had on the organisations and the communities that are served by them.
