Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust – Rights and Justice Programme

Grants are made to a range of organisations and to individuals. It is not necessary to be a registered charity to apply to the Trust, however, the Trust can only support work which is legally charitable as defined in UK law.

The Trust focuses on work at both a national and European level, although work at a European level is limited and must have direct relevance to communities living in the UK. Funding for European work related to refugees and migrants is primarily channelled through the European Programme on Integration and Migration.

The Trust is open to local organisations which can demonstrate genuine national significance and fill a gap in the national policy and advocacy landscape. These applications are expected to be the exception not the norm. The Trust is interested in supporting applications that are informed by direct experiences of discrimination and injustice; are able to amplify local voices; can point to policy opportunities and audiences who will create change; and have access to an infrastructure which can leverage work at a national level amongst policy-makers, opinion formers, NGO’s and the wider public.

The Trust places an emphasis on supporting those who have direct experience of racism and oppression.
