The Edge Fund is currently accepting applications from communities, campaign groups and activists in the UK that are working for social, economic and environmental justice and have not been able to find funding from other sources.
Groups should be:
- Facing discrimination and injustice because of their class, ability, gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or other factors – those who are actively working to challenge these injustices and to create just and healthy communities.
- Working for systemic change – those who seek to dismantle and replace the structures and processes that create oppression, inequality and environmental destruction.
Priority will be given to grassroots or unfunded groups.
Grants are not likely to be for more than £5,000.
Grants of up to £1,000 are also available to individuals who face challenges because of their personal circumstances or background and have a real passion for justice and can demonstrate a clear commitment to taking action.
The deadline for applications is 22 April 2013.
