Justice & Equality Fund

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

Now’s the Time is the second programme from the Justice and Equality Fund managed by Rosa. The 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.

The Justice and Equality Fund aims to bring an end to the culture of harassment, abuse and impunity by resourcing an expert network of advice, support and advocacy organisations and projects. Inspired by the phenomenal campaigners of #metoo, TIME’s UP, Ni Nunca Mas, the #lifeinleggings movements and others, a group of UK-based women from the entertainment industry have come together to challenge the culture that permits people in positions of power to sexually harass and abuse others.

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 will only accept partnership applications to this, the large grant programme. We want to fund:

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.
