The Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust Ltd: Supporting Political Campaigns in the UK to Promote Democratic Reform, Civil Liberties and Social Justice

Deadline: 7 June 2017

The Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust Ltd (JRRT) is currently accepting applications for its grant program supporting political campaigns in the UK to promote democratic reform, civil liberties and social justice.

Objectives

The Trust seeks to:

  • correct imbalances of power, supporting the voice of the individual, the small and weak where that voice is stifled by the group, the big and strong;
  • strengthen the hand of individuals, groups and organisations who are striving for reform, speaking truth to power and challenging the systems that hinder justice;
  • address the underlying causes of weakness and injustice in the body politic rather than remedying its superficial manifestations;
  • foster creative intervention by anticipating and brokering change within the body politic;
  • support a politically plural society by helping to correct the financial imbalance between the major parties;
  • assist political liberals from all the major parties in the UK to promote new liberal ideas and policies.

Methods

Trust endeavour to meet its aims by:

  • supporting causes, people or organisations where they share our values even when they may find little favour with mainstream opinion;
  • supporting our grantees with more than money to create a supportive community of shared belief;
  • being responsive and flexible, allowing us to adapt our priorities to the needs of our time;
  • recognising that whilst the Trust might risk its money and reputation in its grant-making, those it supports often risk very much more;
  • supporting those who have identified the point where the minimum amount of thrust will have the maximum effect.

Types of Grants

  • Small grants – £7,500 or less
  • Larger grants – over £7,500
