Bromley Relief In Need

BRIN was formed in 1973 from an amalgamation of several ancient local charities that have been helping people in Bromley since 1631!

BRIN can offer small grants (usually up to £300) to a person in need living in Bromley.  

All requests should be sent from professional third party sponsors such as social workers, healthcare professionals, religious leaders or another charity.

Please see our examples below to see the type of applications that BRIN is likely to approve.  To find out more see BRIN’s website here.
