Grants for Human and Legal Rights Organisations – 31st March 2020 (UK)

Grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 are available to voluntary sector organisations whose work is related to the law and the legal profession. Projects supported will be working to promote human rights, provide access to justice or to provide legal education. Priority is particularly given to projects that promote the needs of excluded, under-represented or disadvantaged groups and minorities.

The Law Society Charity offers grants to voluntary sector organisations whose work is related to the law and the legal profession for projects that:

  • Promote human rights
  • Provide access to justice
  • Provide legal education.

Priority is particularly given to projects that promote the needs of excluded, under-represented or disadvantaged groups and minorities.

Please note that the Law Society is unable to give grants to locally-based bodies such as law centres, Citizens’ Advice Bureaux.

Grants are usually awarded on a one-off basis and can occasionally be spread over 2-3 years.

Organisations supported in the past include Youth Net which received funding towards the development of information to young people via alternative communication tools and the Legal Action Group (LAG) which received funding towards the development of LAG’s monthly magazine Legal Action.

The closing date for the 31st March meeting will be published when The Law Society Charity has received a number of applications that can be properly assessed.  Applications received after a closing date has been published will be assessed at the next following meeting date.
