Partnership is the name of the game when it comes to winning bids and CVA has worked proactively to try and support local groups to come together as consortia or put in partnership bids. 

CVA also supports its partners to bring extra funding into Croydon VCS – for example via the Croydon Commitment to Grassroots Trust grants by managing the funds in a way that makes them accessible to all.


In 2016 The Grassroots Trust distributed £11,798 to six local groups.
