AB Charitable trust is seeking applications to support work that promotes human dignity and defends the human rights of marginalised and excluded people.
Their focus is on supporting the most marginalised and excluded groups in the UK, who are often from communities experiencing poverty and racial inequality.
People who migrate, are refugees or seeking asylum, and people involved in the criminal justice system, are often the subject of negative public narrative – and being unpopular causes, can be difficult to fundraise for. In supporting access to justice, they recognise that high-quality legal advice and representation is a powerful tool to help bring about both individual redress and systemic change.
They usually fund single focus organisations working solely in their priority areas. For these organisations, they generally give core funding (unrestricted grants).
They fund small to medium sized charities work in three priority areas:
- Migrants and refugees
- Criminal Justice and Penal Reforms
- Human Rights, Paricularly Access to Justice
- Grants range in size, with most grants awarded being in the range £10,000 to £20,000.
- Work in one of their priority areas.
- Be registered as a UK charity, delivering work in the UK.
- Have an annual income between £150k and £1.5m.
- Have operated for at least a year and be able to provide a full year’s audited or independently examined accounts.
