In addition to funding direct legal education activities relating to the above, the Governors recognise that the following Tools can contribute to the progress in any or all of the above Strategic Objectives. Requests are, therefore welcome on the following:
- Work to understand the role that technology can play in achieving these objectives.
- Work on law reform, policy and regulation to create a supportive environment for the delivery of these objectives.
- Communications activity to disseminate learning and to create a supportive environment for the delivery of these objectives. We encourage organisations who are making grant applications to consider whether their projects would benefit from the inclusion of a communications strategy.
The Foundation is currently undertaking a scoping exercise to assess options for expanding investment in data, measures and quantitative research to develop a robust evidence base for improving access to civil and administrative justice. As a result, we are not accepting unsolicited applications for research under our open programme.
