FAQs: Application Process

Applications can only be submitted once a year for each of our focus areas. In 2024, our first funding opportunity will focus on vulnerable young women and girls either on the edge of the criminal justice system or who already have a criminal conviction and who have served a custodial sentence. This funding opportunity will open in the spring with a view to awarding grants in the autumn. Details of our second opportunity, which will also focus on young women and girls, will be announced in September with funding awarded the following spring.
