Now’s the Time Programme Accepting Large Grant Applications

Following on from the small grants programme, Rosa has launched the 'Now's the Time' large grants programme from the Justice and Equality Fund.

Now’s the Time, the second programme from the Justice and Equality Fund managed by Rosa, aims to amplify the voices of those who are calling for an end to sexual harassment and abuse, in their workplaces and in their communities.

The Fund aims to bring an end to the culture of harassment, abuse and impunity by resourcing an expert network of advice, support and advocacy organisations and projects.

'Now's the Time' large grant funding is for organisations working together in partnership who can answer the programme’s question: What would you do towards ending sexual harassment in work places and in communities?

Large grants of up to £100,000 over one to three years are available to fund:

  • Prevention work.
  • Awareness raising activities.
  • Imaginative and creative grassroots activism.
  • Influencing work.
  • Work with groups and communities who might face additional barriers to getting their voices heard, or might be at higher risk of sexual harassment and abuse to amplify those voices.
  • Work that tries out new ideas.
  • Work that replicates tried and tested approaches in new settings.
  • Work that others can learn from.

There is particular interest in cross-sector partnerships where the expertise of specialist voluntary sector organisations at the forefront of this work is shared with others to help drive broader change.

Applicants are ‘strongly advised’ to attend one of the two ‘How to Apply’ webinars which will be held on:

  • 15 October (10:30am to 11:30 am).
  • 14 November (2pm to 3pm).

Registration is required, and this can be done via Rosa’s website (look for the links at the bottom of the Justice and Equality: Now's the Time webpage).

The deadline for applications is 14 December 2018 (5pm).
