Offenders and Ex-offenders Fund

Registered charities, charitable incorporated organisations, and in exceptional circumstances Community Interest Companies can apply for grants for projects that support offenders and ex-offenders as well as into work and helping specific less popular groups within the criminal justice sector.

The funding is being made available through the Weavers’ Company and in allocating funding, priority is given to projects that support offenders into work; and projects that work with less popular groups in society.  A secondary priority is given to supporting projects that work with young people from disadvantaged and socio-economically challenged groups, such as immigrants, to ensure they are given every possible chance to realise their full potential and to participate fully in society. 

The Company operates two funding streams:

  • A Small Grants Programme that provides grant of up to £5,000
  • A Main Grants programme which has no maximum grant limit

The funding is available for both project and core costs. Applicants must show they have investigated other sources of funding and made plans for future funding.
