Infrastructure Support Grant

If your organisation is currently a recipient of grants from the Justice Together Initiative, or a partner on a bid, we are welcoming applications for funding of work that strengthens your organisation through our Infrastructure Support Grant.

Our Infrastructure Support Grants are designed to respond to your organisation’s needs. We have £195,000 remaining from our budget of £300,000 to give, and we will be providing grants of up to £20,000 to individual organisations.

Our grants are restricted to strengthening organisations, please note that we will not provide funding for new posts. We will also not provide funding for fundraising posts as we will seek to support our partners with fundriaing moving forward due to the demand in this area.

Below is a list of some examples the funding can be used for, this is by no means exhaustive, and we welcome suggestions on what your organisation needs to be stronger:

  • Human resources support
  • Consultants to assist in developing strategic plans, Theory of change, and learning plans
  • Wellbeing support
  • Leadership training
  • Support to develop and implement an anti-racist strategy

Examples of grants we have awarded so far include:

  • Tech and IT Equipment
  • Porject management and voulnteer training

How we will make decisions

Requests will be assessed by our grants team and grant committee member, and will take into consideration:

  • Appropriateness of funding towards strengthening your organisation
  • Budget available for our Infrastructure Support Grants
  • Availability of other funder-plus options

Please also note when deciding whether an organisation is small or grassroots, we will consider the following: the number of staff, having a turnover of under 350k, and whether the organisation is volunteer-led.

Funding decisions will be made every month, possibly quicker for applications requiring urgent or time-sensitive support. Please note the process of receiving a decision and distributing funds can take up to 3 months to complete.
