Thanks to National Lottery players, The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded £150,000 to Bexley Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) which will be used to provide grants for local voluntary and community groups to deliver activities specifically aimed to support communities through the COVID19 crisis to further realise equality, diversity and inclusion ambitions locally.
Applications are now open for:

The grants are intended to start within one month of the grant acceptance letter and spent within 8 months.
