Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust Launches New Grants Programme (UK)

After having completed a strategic review of its funding, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust has announced the launch of its new grants programme. Under its new programmes the Trust is inviting application under the following programmes:

• Peace and Security;
• Power and Accountability;
• Rights and Justice;
• Sustainable Future;
• and Northern Ireland.

The Trust anticipates that funding will be under one of these programmes but will also consider applications that cut across one or more of these.

Applications can be submitted by a range of different organisations and the Trust generally funds work that is about addressing the root causes of problems rather than delivering services or alleviating immediate needs.

It is not necessary to be a registered charity to apply to the Trust. However, the Trust can only support work which is legally charitable as defined in UK law.

There are two closing dates for applications. These are 12 noon on the 18th August for the Right and Justice, Sustainable Future, and Northern Ireland Programmes; and the 12 noon on the 1st September for the Peace and Security, and Power and Accountability Programmes.
