FUNDING: of up to £3,000 Available to Groups Fighting Discrimination and Injustice (UK)
16 September 2019
Small community groups working towards tackling discrimination and injustice because of their class, ability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other factors have until the 16th September 2019 to apply for grants of up to £3,000
The funding is available to non-profit organisations (including groups that are not formally registered) based in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. The grants are being made available through the Edge Fund which is interested in supporting small groups that struggle to get funding elsewhere, particularly if other funders might consider them to be too radical. Previous groups supported include the Black Triangle Campaign which is run by and for disabled people and campaigns against government welfare reform, work capability assessments, compulsory workfare, privatisation of the welfare state and all disability cuts; and DPAC Norfolk which received a grant of £750 to establish a UK wide network of individuals and organisations dedicated to scrapping Universal Credit.
