About the funding

This fund is open to deliver projects and activities that work with Black and racially minoritised children and young people to prevent and reduce violence.

The Phoenix Way (TPW) is a national collaborative partnership created during the Covid-19 pandemic as a response to the structural inequalities which Black and racially minoritised communities and community-led organisations face in relation to influencing and accessing grant funding in the UK. Its principal aims are to: 

  • Transform the relationships between funders and Black and racially minoritised organisations
  • Tackle systemic race inequalities, and
  • Develop shared leadership, which actively invests in these communities and empowers them to make decisions about funding processes, priorities and allocations.  

Eligible organisations must meet the following criteria:

  • Be led by representatives of Black and racially minoritised communities and work within Black and racially minoritised communities
  • Have annual income of up to £150,000 per year
  • Are located and deliver work in England and/or Wales
  • Work with children and young people that are 18 or under from Black and/or racially minoritised communities
  • Work with children and young people that are at high risk of becoming involved in violence
