The Bridging Fund Charitable Trust

The Bridging Fund Charitable Trust aims to support organisations in the UK working with individuals who are experiencing financial hardship.
The Trust's charitable objectives are:
“To assist those who the Trustees feel are in temporary difficulty and who could be “got back on their feet” with a little help. To achieve this the charity will make grants to other charities who have an infrastructure in place to pass funds effectively onto those individuals.”
Organisations in the UK that are working with people in crisis are eligible to apply for one-off  grants in the region of £1,000 to £10,000.  This appears to include CICs, constituted voluntary organisations and registered charities. PLEASE NOTE: applications are not accepted from individuals.
Over the last five financial years the Trust has recorded an average annual expenditure of just under £250,000.
The Trust prefers grants to be used to directly assist individuals in crisis rather than to pay wages and running costs of the organisation.
Applications may be submitted at any time. There is no application form. Applications should be made in writing with the following information: 
o What work the organisation does to help individuals in crisis;
o Details of what the organisation wants a grant for; and
o The amount of funding required.
The Trust does not have a website. Some background information is however available on the Open Charities and Charity Commission websites.
Contact details for the Trust are:
