Funding Programmes

Funding Programmes

The core of Our Strategy 2020-2025 is delivered through three programmes. Alongside grants, we offer additional advice and support to grantees where they need it, as well as undertaking direct charitable work ourselves.

You can find out more about our three programmes in this section:

Stronger Sector

This grants programme supports education, training and development aimed at addressing systemic gaps in skills in the social justice legal sector and to strengthen the capacity of individuals and organisations in the social justice field to deliver their important work effectively and sustainably. It also includes the Justice First Fellowship.

Fairer Systems

This grants programme supports work to increase people’s capacity to understand the way laws are made and implemented. It has two linked areas of focus: the constitutional and legal implications of leaving the EU; and the growing use of automated decision-making by government.

Smarter Justice

This programme seeks to strengthen a commitment to collecting and learning from robust evidence in the design and operation of the UK justice system. We are taking forward this work by building learning activities into all our grants and will supplement this with further proactive grants and commissions. There are currently no open grants rounds under this programme.
