£3m Disability Justice Fund Opens for Applications

Health & Social Welfare

11 July 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to strengthen capacity and resilience in organisations supporting Deaf and Disabled People.

Trust for London, in partnership with City Bridge Trust, is delivering a brand-new fund to support Deaf and Disabled People's Organisations (DPPOs) to become more effective, more inclusive, more influential and more sustainable.

The Fund is open to non-profit organisations in London which meet the Trust's definition of DPPO:

  • The management committee/board has at least 75% representation from Deaf or Disabled people.
  • At least 50% of the paid staff team is Deaf or Disabled with representation at all levels of the organisation.
  • The organisation provides services for, or works on behalf of, Deaf or Disabled people.

There are two levels of funding available:

  • Large Grants - the funders are open to considering each request on a case-by-case basis, though it is unlikely that grants for more than £120,000 will be awarded.
  • Small Grants - up to £15,000.

Grants are designed to be flexible and can be used for core or project-related costs. However, organisations requesting unrestricted core funding must be registered as charities.

The Trust would like to fund work that:

  • Strengthens the capacity of DPPOs to engage in campaigning, policy, advocacy and generally mobilise for change.
  • Contributes to growing, broadening and diversifying the disability sector.

There will be a series of online information sessions for potential applicants in the coming months.

The deadline to apply is 5pm on 3 October 2022.

Full guidelines and an application form can be found on the Trust for London website.
