Implementing successful litigation fund – next deadline on 20th May

Just a reminder that the next deadline for this rolling fund is 20th May at 9am. Grants of up to £30,000 are available for a wide range of activities aimed at implementing a successful piece of litigation.
Strengthening Civil Society

The next deadline for this fund is 20 May 2020 at 9am.

This is the second round of the  Implementation of Successful Litigation Fund which is aimed at civil society organisations who want to implement a court judgment, or other outcome of a litigation process, that has the potential to achieve social change for people facing discrimination and disadvantage.

We’ve launched this fund in recognition that lasting change is rarely achieved in the court room alone and envisage that implementation might involve a range of activities including:

  • advocacy and policy influencing
  • campaigning
  • awareness raising
  • research
  • monitoring of implementation, or
  • further legal action.

Grants of up to £30,000 are available, for up to one year. There will be a third and final round for this fund this year with a deadline of 12 August 2020 at 9am. See the Application guidelines for decision dates.

Grants awarded under this fund are designed to support ongoing work by organisations who have played a part in the successful litigation they are applying for funding for; and usually for organisations for whom litigation is not their core business. 

Please note that in this second round applications will be considered from charities with an annual income of £2m or under.
