UK-registered charities that seek to combat abuse and violations of human rights can apply for funding through the A B Charitable Trust (ABCT).
The Trust is particularly focussed on charities supporting unpopular causes reaching the most vulnerable and marginalised in society, for example:
- Prisoners and penal reform
- Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers
- Human rights, particularly access to justice.
The Trust generally makes one-off grants to charities registered and working in the UK with annual incomes of between £150,000 and £1.5m that do not have substantial investments or surpluses. Grants range in size, with most grants awarded being in the range £10,000 to £20,000. ABCT does not normally fund charities with large national or international links. Apply online following the guidelines supplied on the website.
The next closing date for applications is the 1st December 2017.
