Grants of between £30,000 and £400,000 are available to not-for-profit organisations in the UK to address racism and structural inequalities within the immigration system. The grants are available for projects lasting between 12 months and 4 years with an option to extend for a further period. The funding is being made available through the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Shared Ground Fund. The Foundation also has a particular interest in the lives of young people who lack permanent status in the UK, including those who are undocumented. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss ideas before submitting applications related to this focus area. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust are accepting applications both in response to the current pandemic but also for projects looking to deliver longer terms results. Applications can be submitted at any time as the Trustees review applications for funding requests up to £50,000 on a monthly basis. However, if you wish to apply for funding of more than £50,000 then your application will be considered at the next bi-annual meeting of Trustees which usually take place around March and September. For more information or to apply, please visit the charity website.
