The Equality and Human Rights Commission has launched the first stage of its new £10 million 'Strategic Funding Programme', providing three-year funding of up to £450,000 for community and voluntary sector organisations.
The Commission will particularly prioritise the following two areas:
- Priority One – Providing guidance, advice and advocacy services; infrastructure development and capacity building
- Priority Two – Good Relations
- Please note: a third priority, legal casework, will be launched later in the summer of 2009.
The Commission is particularly keen to fund activity that directly serves and involves individuals and local communities, that meets an unmet need, and that has the potential to inspire and inform longer-term activity that helps promote the Commission's objectives.
