Baring Foundation Offers Funding for Small Expert Legal Hub Organisations

Funder: Baring Foundation

Funding Available:

Closing Date: 30 April, 2024

Available to: Registered Charities

Type of Fund: National

About this Funding:

Civil society organisations in the UK can apply now for grants of up to £150,000 over three years to use legal action collaboratively to achieve positive social change. It is expected that between 7 and 10 grants will be awarded.

The unrestricted grants can support hub activities which use legal action in all its forms, whether that is to empower individuals and groups, persuade public and private bodies, challenge government, or a mix of all three. The funding can be used for any costs related to the hub work, such as covering lawyers’ fees, towards the salaries of admin staff supporting hub work, or towards management costs to oversee the work.

Applications will be accepted from UK civil society organisations which are a legally registered not-for-profit entity in the UK, preferably a charity, with an annual income of less than £750,000 and whose activities will be delivered in the UK.

There is particular interest in civil society organisations that:

  • Have a focus on housing, education and/or social care.
  • Are working in Wales or the English regions outside of Greater London
  • Focus on less used areas of law, for example labour law or under-utilised areas of equality laws such as race equality provisions.

There is a two-stage application process. Organisations that would like to speak to a member of the Baring Foundation staff before submitting their expression of interest should email the Baring Foundation by midday on 16 April 2024 to arrange a time.

The deadline for Expressions of Interest is 30 April 2024.
