Grants with Multiple Deadlines - The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust

For more information or to apply, please follow this link:


The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) makes grants to individuals and to projects seeking the creation of a peaceful world, political equality and social justice. It generally funds work under one of the six programme headings listed below.



Work that promotes the nonviolent resolution of conflict, including work on the arms trade, the creation of a culture of peace, developing effective peacebuilding measures and supporting the right to conscientious objection to military service.


Racial justice

Work which promotes racial justice in all parts of society, including empowering black and minority ethnic people to engage in decision making and policy development, and work which monitors and challenges racism and racial injustice whether relating to colour or culture.


Power and responsibility

Work that encourages an appropriate relationship between people and the institutions that affect them; including the promotion of accountability, openness, responsiveness and a respect for human rights across the public and private sectors.


Quaker concerns

Work that helps to deepen the spiritual life of the Society of Friends or that develops Quaker responses to problems of our time.


Ireland and Northern Ireland

Work which will contribute at a strategic level to the ongoing transformation of the Northern Ireland conflict through strengthening 'new politics', fostering a culture of human rights, equality and civil liberties, supporting initatives which promote a shared understanding of the root causes of past violence and work to strengthen citizens engagement on social justice issues, particularly from marginalised groups.

From April 2011 JRCT has introduced a 2-year moratorium on applications from organisations or initiatives in the Republic of Ireland which are not currently funded by the Trust.  There is one exception to this moratorium.  The Trust will accept applications from the Republic of Ireland for work which relates to the new policy on conflict issues in Northern Ireland.  This moratorium will create space for JRCT to review its funding in the Republic of Ireland and consider the nature of future involvement.


South Africa (KwaZulu Natal only)

The Trust's programme in South Africa is now closed to new applications. Existing grants will be paid. The programme has supported work that promotes a just and peaceful South Africa, particularly through the reduction of rural poverty and addressing the problems of violent conflict on all levels of society.

I don't understand why this is just limited in Kwazulu Natal here in South Africa while we are daily facing many challenges of human rights abuse and xenophobic tendencies in the Gautend Province being refugees living with disabilities. We will appreciate if you can extend to us this opportunity to apply to the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.

Thank you.
