The Autumn 2020 grant round remained focused on the issues exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, with a focus on supporting work which is difficult to find funding for elsewhere, scalable delivery models, preservation of legal specialisation and work of strategic importance. Areas of law such as employment and housing were focused on as these services face a huge surge in demand. Issues facing vulnerable young people were also prioritised.
It brings the total number of organisations receiving grants to 32 with over £1.7m committed since launching in 2019. Read more about the Autumn 2020 grant round.
