The Barrow Cadbury Trust is an independent, charitable foundation committed to bringing about a more just and equal society. The Trust has a Quaker heritage and looks for long-term solutions and structural change by addressing the root causes of inequality.
According to the Trust, the criminal justice system was, and remains, principally designed to respond to crimes committed by men and the system still fails to adequately account for the distinct needs and contexts of other groups in society, such as young adults, women, those from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
In response to this, the Trust’s Criminal Justice Programme aims to support projects that will strengthen the evidence base for practical, structural change for young adults and women and increase the criminal justice system’s ability to support their rehabilitation and desistance from crime.
There is no average grant size. The Trust looks at proposals on a case by case basis.
Applications can be made at any time.
