We have a particular interest in locally-based projects seeking to increase the participation of male Travellers in the development of their own community, including initiatives breaking new ground in family support, culturally-appropriate employment initiatives and personal development. We are interested in initiatives which improve literacy levels and educational progression and projects which support physical and mental health. We encourage fresh thinking around enduring issues and applications should include a pathway to sharing the learning at all levels.

This grants focus area generally supports work with prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families. We consider progressive initiatives focused on new approaches for: alternatives to custody; in-prison supports; through-the-gate supports; the availability of options to integrate the ex-prisoner back into society and initiatives working with prisoners’ families. Projects should include reflection and social analysis in the application, which allows the organisation to demonstrate what works or doesn’t work. Information gathered should be used to influence policy development and to effect change on some of the more difficult issues facing prisoners/ex-prisoners and their families. Development projects or start-up initiatives need to have a clear basis for future sustainability.
