A B Charitable Trust’s 2019/20 Round Open to Applications
Small- to medium-sized UK charities can apply for funding to support work that defends human rights and promotes respect for vulnerable individuals in the UK.
The A B Charitable Trust (ABCT) is an independent, UK based grant-making organisation founded in 1990 that is concerned with promoting and defending human dignity.
Grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 are available to registered charities with an annual income of between £150,000 and £1.5 million that seek to address the needs of the most marginalised and neglected groups in society.
To be eligible, projects should focus on at least one of the following priority categories:
- Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
- Criminal justice and penal reform.
- Human rights, particularly access to justice.
The funding can be used for project or core costs.
Charities need to be based and working in the UK. The Trust does not fund charities working overseas or charities with large national or international links.
This funding is in high demand, and only around a third of eligible applicants will receive a grant.
There are four application deadlines within a year.
The next deadline for applications is 28 July 2019.
