THE BARING FOUNDATION STRENGTHENING CIVIL SOCIETY FUND FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SUCCESSFUL LITIGATION

Grants up to £150,000 over 3 years for UK not-for-profit legal hub organisations to scale up their activities in order to challenge discrimination and disadvantage, and create long-term social change.

 

o Application deadline: Wednesday 28 July 2021.

 

o Who can apply: UK not-for-profit organisations, preferably charities, with an annual income of under £1.5 million.

The Foundation is particularly keen to receive applications from sectors that have received less funding from the Foundation in the past, specifically:

o Organisations with a focus on housing and/or social care.
o Organisations working in Wales or the English regions outside of Greater London; 
and
o Organisations which focus on less used areas of law, such as projects that focus on labour law or housing law and under-utilised areas of equality and human rights law such as race equality provisions.

Applications will be considered from civil society organisations (particularly charities) in the UK who:

o Fulfil all three criteria in their definition of a hub organisation.
o Have hub activities as one of their main areas of activity.
o Can demonstrate pre-existing plans for scaling their hub activity;
o Are a legally registered not-for-profit entity in the UK, preferably a charity.
o Have at least one full year’s accounts.
o Have an income of under £1.5m per year; 
and
o Will undertake activities with this grant which delivers benefit in the UK (applications for international work will not be considered). 

The Fund has a 3-stage application process, as follows

Stage 1:  the first stage is a 300-word of Expression of Interest. The deadline for this Expression of Interest is Wednesday 28 July. Expressions of Interest can be submitted at this LINK.
o
 Stage 2: applicants that are successful at the Expression of Interest Stage will be invited to submit a detailed written application.
