Edge Fund opens for applications

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. Priority will be given to grassroots or underfunded groups.

Grants are not likely to be for more than £5,000. 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 systematic change – those who seek to replace the structures and processes that create oppression, inequality and environmental destruction.

Deadline for applications is 8 September 2014. For more information visit the website.
