The funding is intended to support groups working in the following areas:
It prioritises groups campaigning to create long-term change which will benefit large sections of society and tries to help those whose radical stance and approach might make it difficult for them to source funding from elsewhere.
Grants range from £100 to £10,000. The average grant is between £2,000 and £4,000.
Small non-profit organisations, including registered charities, new organisations and start-ups can apply.
Charity Pot grants are generally directed towards campaigning project costs; however, core costs are occasionally considered where a detailed budget and explanation is provided.
Applications can be submitted at any time but should be submitted at least three months before the start of the project.
