Help with Funding

Help with funding picture

Community Links Bromley provides support to not-for-profit organisations in applying for funding and submitting bids. We deliver regular workshops and training on topics including writing bids and applying for specific funding opportunities. We promote the latest funding opportunites and funding-related training available to the voluntary sector, primarily through our website and our weekly e-bulletin.

Follow the links on the right to view funding opportunities and subscribe to our e-bulletin.

If you'd like to apply for any of the funding opportunities in our e-bulletins and/or on our website, we are happy to provide support in the development of your funding applications. Additionally, we now have access to a searchable database of a wide selection of grants and funding schemes. If you have a specific need around a theme, we can run that search for you and send you the results. Alternatively, you can book some time with us and undertake your own search under supervision.‚Äč Please contact our Funding & Development Officer, Stephen Smith at
