Grants of up to £100,000 available through the Justice and Equality Fund’s ‘Now’s the Time’large grants programme

Source By: ROSA the UK fund for Women and Girls

Now’s the Time, the second programme from the Justice and Equality Fund, has now opened for applications for up to £100,000. Similarly to the Now's the Time small grants programme, the large grants programme aims to amplify the voices of individuals and groups who are calling for an end to sexual harassment and abuse, in their workplaces and in their communities.

We want to resource imaginative, collaborative and creative grassroots activism so we are asking organisations to partner up and apply by answering the question: What would you do towards ending sexual harassment in work places and in communities?

We want to fund:

  • Prevention work
  • Awareness raising activities
  • Imaginative and creative grassroots activism
  • Influencing work
  • Work with groups and communities who might face additional barriers to getting their voices heard, or might be at higher risk of sexual harassment and abuse to amplify those voices
  • Work that tries out new ideas
  • Work that replicates tried and tested approaches in new settings
  • Work that others can learn from

We are particularly keen to see cross-sector partnerships where the expertise of specialist voluntary sector organisations at the forefront of this work is shared with others to help drive broader change.

All applications must be submitted by Friday 14th December 2018 at 5pm.

Still unsure? We’d like to talk to you! Please email us to request a chat and one of our team will get back to you.

Source By: Big Lottery Fund

The Big Lottery Fund has launched a new UK wide £15 million funding programme to help charities and community organisations use digital tools and approaches.

 

The fund will be open to applications on 22 October until 3 December. Awarding grants of up to £500,000, the fund has two strands and will operate for two years. The first strand is aimed at established charities, with a minimum income of over £500,000 per year, that want to use digital to take a major leap forward. The second strand is aimed at more recently-established organisations that are successfully using digital, but need help scaling this up.
