New funding available for continuing work after successful litigation

Grants of up to £30,000 for organisations to implement successful litigation whether through advocacy and policy influencing, campaigning, research, awareness raising, monitoring or further legal action...
Strengthening Civil Society

We are launching a new round of funding today for 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 know that change is rarely achieved in the court room alone and this fund is designed to help civil society to continue its work after successful litigation.

We 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. Application deadlines are staggered throughout 2020. The first deadline is 9am on Wednesday 29 January 2020 for decision by Friday 6 March 2020. Subsequent deadlines are listed in the Application Guidelines.

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.
