Aziz Foundation’s Grant: Supporting Charitable Activities in United Kingdom

Deadline: 2 July 2018

The Aziz Foundation is seeking applications for its grant program to support charitable activities, usually to registered charities or charitable community groups, but sometimes to other bodies or individuals authorized by the Board of Trustees.

The focus of the foundation’s work is in identifying and addressing the challenges faced by disadvantaged communities; developing new leadership from within these communities, and enabling them to participate positively in wider society.

Priority Areas

  • Community Empowerment: This work stream will work with disadvantaged communities, particularly African-Caribbean, Gypsy-Traveler, Muslim, and White working class communities to:
    • Identify the most pressing issues and needs facing them, and raise awareness around them.
    • Support key local and national initiatives that seek to build capacity to address these issues and needs either directly through direct development work, or indirectly, through arts, culture and sports.
    • Develop best practice and efficiency in these communities in addressing their own needs and contributing to the common good.
  • Leadership Development: The leadership development work stream will support the development of leadership in disadvantaged communities that is appropriate to their needs, through:
    • Identifying gaps in the capacity of the current leadership.
    • Supporting the development of initiatives that can fill these gaps in future leadership.
    • Identifying potential future leaders and supporting them in equipping themselves for that role.
  • Public Engagement: This work stream will assist in strengthening that representation and voice in wider society, to enable them to play an active role in public life, to address their own needs and to contribute to the common good, by:
    • Producing their own research and narratives about their communities.
    • Learning about public life, engaging in politics and speaking to power.
    • Influencing public policy to achieve group justice.
    • Speaking to the nation to correct misinformation, stereotypes and prejudice.
    • Challenging disadvantage and discrimination through strategic litigation.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications from within the UK are eligible for consideration, unless specified in the advert.
  • Applications for project funding will be considered on their own merit, regardless of previous rejection or receipt of grants.
  • The Board of Trustees has ultimate responsibility for all grant-making decisions in line with the Foundation’s charitable purposes and any restrictions agreed with donors and funding partners. However, the Board of Trustees may give certain decision-making responsibilities to its subcommittees or staff within its framework of delegation.
