Checklist

If you are unclear whether you fit our guidelines, these checklists might help. We appreciate some applications may fall under both categories. We are only funding groups based in, and working on issues in, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England.

1. Work run by and for people facing discrimination and injustice (because of their class, ability, gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or other factors) that is actively working to challenge these injustices and to create just and healthy communities.

If you are eligible you will agree with most of these statements:

  • We are a group of people facing discrimination and injustice because of our class, ability, gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or other factors;
  • We are involved in activities that, for example, expose, challenge and raise awareness of the injustices we face and the causes of them and bring people together to take action, or create new ways for people to live together in society which respects everyone’s right to a happy and healthy life, regardless of who they are. More;
  • We are not an established organisation or registered charity with mainstream sources of funding (e.g. local council, Lottery);
  • We have no or very few paid staff and very little funding. We often fund work out of our own pockets.

2. Work aiming to create systemic change – those who seek to dismantle and replace the structures and processes that create oppression, inequality and environmental destruction.

If you are eligible you will agree with most of these statements:

  • My group does not primarily aim to change individuals’ lives by providing social care, support or aid to help them survive in our unjust society;
  • We aim to change society to create a world where no-one struggles to survive because resources, power and wealth are shared equally and everyone has what they need to live a full and healthy life (including a healthy environment). More;
  • We are involved in activities that, for example, expose, challenge and raise awareness of injustice, brings people together to build a movement or creates alternatives to systems and structures that give power and wealth to the privileged few;
  • We are not an established organisation or registered charity with mainstream sources of funding (e.g. local council, Lottery). We are often ruled out or turned down for funding due to our radical approach or informal structure;
  • We have no or very few paid staff and minimal funding. We often fund work out of our own pockets;
  • We take direction from the people most affected by the issue we’re working on;
  • We organise using a non-hierarchical structure.
