It has a limited budget of around £70,000 per year and is only available for youth organisations working in the London Borough of Bromley and who are also members of Bromley CVYS.

Grants are available for:

  • voluntary groups
  • individuals attending training and other events
  • enhancing educational provision
  • young athletes.

Further details on this fund can be found through the following link: grant aid for youth organisations

Crystal Palace Park Community Projects Fund

This grant scheme will continue for the next three years. The Council will award grants bewteen £100 and £20,000 to community groups to deliver specific projects and activities in the park.

More guidance and information about elegibility criteria are available here.

Many local authorities are now moving away from grant-making and beginning to use commissioning as a way to distribute funding to the third sector. Local commissioners can be difficult to find and identify, however NAVCA have created a guide that may help: 'Finding your Commissioner'
