  • We run two grant rounds each year. This year our focus is on young women and girls who have been in the criminal justice system or who are at a high risk of entering it.
  • The application process has two stages as this gives us the best chance of understanding your proposal and how it links to our aims and our overall Theory of Change.
  • Following the submission of your initial online application, shortlisted applicants will be asked to host an assessment visit with our Director.
  • This is an opportunity for us to find out more about the work you do and the project you would like us to support.
