Paul Hamlyn Foundation – Social Justice

The Social Justice programme aims to help marginalised individuals and communities become integrated. They see integration as a two-way process in which society at large and specific communities adapt, understand and benefit.

The programme builds on previous work supported by the Foundation but remains experimental. The Open Grants Scheme focuses on arts and education and learning-based approaches. They will assess through evaluation the extent to which arts and education and learning can play a role in integration.

They will also seek to further the understanding of the relationships between Social Justice and their other programmes (Arts and Education & Learning). In particular they are interested in understanding how to innovate to secure social change.

They expect the programme and the work they support to have an impact at the following levels

  • Individuals and communities
  • Organisations
  • Policy and practice

They have a two-stage application process. At the first stage, applicants are required to show that the work for which they are seeking funding fits with the themes and priorities of the programme they are applying to. They also require that applicants show how their proposal meets their criteria for Change and Outcomes, Innovation and Participation.
