It is also willing to take risks by supporting unpopular causes and work which government is unlikely to fund.The next deadline for grant application is 1pm on 5th October. Successful grants from this round will go to the February 2018 Grants Committee. As part of its new funding strategy, Trust for London has developed new guidelines on funding, and these are available on its site, along with the application form.Bharat Mehta CBE, chief executive of Trust for London, said:“These guidelines took over a year to develop. We did research on what funding was already available, held consultation sessions and had many individual conversations. It is those people working on the ground who know what communities really need and by listening to those needs, we hope that our commitment to provide nearly £40m of funding over the next five years will make a real difference to the lives of Londoners.“At a time when many things are changing and new opportunities and challenges present themselves, Trusts and Foundations have an important role to play in providing stability for civil society organisations. We will play our part in that. We look forward to receiving our first applications under these new guidelines.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis15center_img Trust for London commits £40m to tackling poverty & inequality About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
