Commonweal’s Call for New Ideas 2023 Focuses on Criminal Justice System in the UK

Funding for frontline organisations to conduct a feasibility study to explore their proposed housing model seeking to address issues with the criminal justice system.

Commonweal Housing, an independent social justice charity working to investigate, pilot and champion housing-based solutions to social injustice, is offering grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 to carry out a short-term feasibility study to evaluate a housing and support model tackling issues facing vulnerable individuals who have come into contact with the criminal justice system.

Not-for-profit organisations in the UK may apply. They do not need to be experts in housing or have experience in delivering housing projects. However, they do need to demonstrate their understanding of the issue they are seeking to address and they should ‘own the problem and own the solution’ in terms of a commitment to see positive change.

There is particular interest in project ideas from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME)-led and BAME-focused organisations.

The deadline to apply is 29 September 2023 (5pm).
