Inspired by the phenomenal #metoo campaign and TIME’S UP movement, The Justice and Equality Fund initiative was launched by a group of women in the entertainment industry, in collaboration with women’s organisations and activists in the UK.
The Fund will support organisations and projects across three themes:
1. Advice, support and signposting: work to make sure people know their rights and can access good quality support for local and national issues. We want a society where everyone knows their rights and can access support to claim them.
2. Legal and policy work: support game-changing legal cases that can help improve laws and policies and create a safer future for us all.
3. Advocacy and prevention: create campaigns and alliances that protect women’s rights, promote equality and ensure safe environments.
Rosa, the only UK-Wide Fund for Women and Girls, has been chosen to host and manage the fund. The Fund’s grant-making will be opened in spring 2018. The fund will address priority needs, especially those of people in low paid, part-time and freelance employment, and those who face intersecting disadvantages related to their race, age, class, immigration status, disability or sexuality.
