The Trust continues to consult widely both internally and externally as it develops its next funding strategy for 2018-2023. To date, the Trust has spoken to over 350 people through a range of consultation events, meetings and conversations. It has also undertaken an online survey which asks five key questions. This recently closed and the results will be made available shortly. The first draft of the Funding Strategy is currently being prepared and will be published at the end of January with some initial reflections published in a blog by Sufina Ahmad, Head of Strategic Review. In the coming months, several additional consultation events will take place and information will be shared on the City of London intranet, in e-bulletins and on posters around the Guildhall and other City of London sites. Finally, City Bridge Trust Chairman Alderman Alison Gowman will be hosting a Breakfast on 7 March in the Private Dining Room to brief Members on the Strategic Review and allow discussion on the funding strategy.
