JRCT is a responsive grant-making trust. Trustees have agreed on the following priority areas and welcome applications for funds under each of these headings: Peace and Security, Power and Accountability, Rights and Justice, Sustainable Future and Northern Ireland.
Applications can be made at any time under the following priority areas:
- Peace and Security to support a transition towards:
- The use of ‘soft’, rather than ‘hard’ power as a first line of response to conflict within society and around the world.
- The de-legitimisation of violence as a tool for responding to conflict, securing interests or projecting power.
- A culture of human rights and non-violent problem-solving, promoted at all levels of society.
- Power and Accountability – to support people to create a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are responsive and accountable to wider society and aligned with the long-term public interest.
- Rights and Justice – to promote racial justice and equality of opportunity as a basis for a harmonious multi-racial, multi-ethnic society in the UK.
- Sustainable Future – to develop and promote sustainable, low-carbon alternatives to the current consumerist and growth-based paradigm.
- Northern Ireland – to fund work which will contribute as a strategic level to the ongoing transformation of the Northern Ireland conflict.
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).
The next deadlines will be in March and April 2018.
Further information and an online application form can be found on the JRCT website.
