The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) has announced that it is now accepting applications for the next round of its Northern Ireland programme. The programme aims to address the root causes of violence and injustice and contributes to the ongoing transformation of the Northern Ireland conflict. It is looking to support projects working on the following priorities:
- Strengthening human rights and equality;
- Supporting inclusive, non-sectarian and participatory politics;
- Supporting processes of demilitarisation;
- Dealing with the past.
JRCT is particularly interested in receiving applications related to women’s participation in all of these areas. Grants range from a few hundred pounds to £100,000+ and may be single payments or spread over up to three years. In addition to applications from Northern Ireland, it is open to receiving applications from Britain and the Republic of Ireland for work related to the above areas, and for work with an all-Ireland focus.
The closing date for applications to this funding round is noon on the 20th August 2018.
