New Grant Programme Open: Strengthening democracy through civic engagement and participation

18th July 2023

As part of SSGT’s strategic goal to contribute to strengthening democracy through civic engagement and participation, we are launching a new funding programme on 18th July 2023 that that aims to contribute to a ‘high energy democracy’ by supporting civil society groups to:

  • Engage in participative and deliberative democracy initiatives that harness the power of civil society to transform democratic decision-making processes
  • Develop progressive platforms for collective power and influence which use values-based approaches to identify elements of transformative change
  • Create spaces for participation and voice, particularly among those who are most marginalised

Details of the scheme including criteria and a link to the relevant online application forms can be found here.
