Deadline: 15 August 2016
The International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) is currently inviting proposals for IRCT Centre Support Grants 2016, in order to support rehabilitation centres’ efforts to ensure that torture victims have access to professional and effective treatment.
The grant must be used for activities related to the rehabilitation of torture victims, but is otherwise unrestricted. However, applications will be assessed in line with the following priorities:
- Provision and development of medical and psychological rehabilitation services;
- Preventative work including documentation of torture and awareness raising activities;
- Internal capacity development aimed at ensuring more effective management, care for caregivers or fundraising ability.
The highest points will be allocated to applications covering all three priorities.
- The maximum annual amount for any applicant should normally not exceed 30% of the centre’s overall budget for 2016.
- Typically, IRCT Centre Support Grants range between EUR 5-15,000 per annum.
- IRCT Member Centres and other centres that are providing effective rehabilitation, but struggle financially despite efforts to raise funds, may apply for grants.
- Priority will be given to applicants located in low and middle-income countries.
- Grants will only be given to applicants that have fulfilled their reporting obligations in connection with earlier grants received from the IRCT.
- Furthermore, applicants with an annual income exceeding EUR 400,000 or that already have 90% of their funding needs covered will not be considered to be in need of Centre Support Grants.

Applicants must download an application form available on the website via email.
