Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust’s UK Grant Programmes

jrctThe Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust is currently accepting applications for projects involving removing problems through radical solutions, and not simply about making problems easier to live with.
Generally, the Trust funds work that is about addressing the root causes of problems rather than delivering services or alleviating immediate needs and recognises that change can take many years to achieve. As a result, the Trust is willing to take the long view and to take risks.

Applications are accepted under the following priority areas:

  1. The use of ‘soft’, rather than ‘hard’ power as a first line of response to conflict within society and around the world.
  2. The de-legitimisation of violence as a tool for responding to conflict, securing interests or projecting power.
  3. A culture of human rights and non-violent problem-solving, promoted at all levels of society.

Cross cutting proposals which directly relate to more than one priority are also accepted; however, this must be clearly demonstrated in the application proposal.

Organisations should be undertaking work at a national level. This means work that seeks to make positive change across the UK as a whole, or across one or more of its member countries – England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

The deadline for applications for Power & Accountability, Rights & Justice, Northern Ireland, Sustainable Future and Cross Cutting applications is 4 December 2017 (12 noon).

The deadline for Peace & Security applications is 10 December 2017 (12 noon).
