About our funding

We hold two grants rounds per year. This year we are looking for proposals wanting to work with young women and girls who have been in the criminal justice system or who are at a high risk of entering it. Please read our criteria closely for our definition of what we mean by this as we will not fund diversionary activities that address issues such as anti-social behaviour.  

The application process has two stages. Following the submission of your initial online application, it will be reviewed by our staff team and shortlisted applicants will be asked to host an assessment visit with our Director. This is an opportunity to find out more about the work you do and the project you would like us to support.

To ensure that we support the projects that best fit our strategy, we visit more organisations than we can fund as we want to meet you in person rather than just reading about what you do in your application. Our Trustees then have the difficult job of deciding which applications we will go on to support with funding.
