Aims of Fund

Edge Fund supports those taking action for a just, equitable and sustainable world. They fund work that challenges abuses of power and aims to bring an end to the systems that cause injustice.

Who can apply

Grassroots community groups in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England that find it difficult to get funding elsewhere, and whose work focuses on creating long term change in society, and reducing inequality and injustice. All groups funded in the past have had an annual income of less than £25,000. Work that addresses issues faced by a certain community should be led by that community.

Grants of up to £1,000 are also available for individuals who face barriers in taking action for social justice.

Edge Fund have published a list of grants given in their last round.

How much and what can you apply for

Up to £3,000 for existing groups, up to £1,000 for new groups (less than 1 year), up to £1,000 for individuals.

How to apply

Fill in their application form, which you can download from their website.

There is more information on their website about how to apply, including funding criteria and a values statement.

If you need support preparing your application (e.g. because you have not written a funding application before, because English is not your first language, because you need the application form in a different format), contact them and they can provide support.

If your application is shortlisted, and is for more than £1500, you will be invited to attend a decision making day, at which applicants will take part in deciding which groups will receive larger grants.
