Community Justice Fund – Improving Lives Through Advice Grants Programme
Closing Date: 15/09/2023
Grants are available for registered charities working in England to provide access to specialist welfare legal advice to the most marginalised communities in England, including people with disabilities, women fleeing abuse and families facing eviction.
The funding is intended to ensure continued access to specialist social welfare legal advice to some of the most marginalised communities in England and aims to transform lives, address systemic issues, and empower individuals, families, and communities in need by funding organisations working at the frontline.
Marginalised communities is defined for the purposes of this grant programme as ‘communities of place, people or interest most in need, experiencing exclusion and at risk of facing barriers to accessing advice services’.
There will be two funding rounds:
Round one is focused on funding specialist legal advice organisations.
Round two will prioritise funding to groups led by and for marginalised communities. These can be organisations delivering advice services, and/or those working closely with advice organisations to improve access for marginalised communities. Further information will be made available in Autumn 2023.
