A Fairer Future

Advocacy Academy

We want to contribute to a just and anti-racist society, where those who need it most have their rights protected, the opportunity to speak and be heard, and the freedom to express their creativity.

We want to shine new light on areas of need and challenge the cultures, systems and behaviours that stand in the way of change.

Working with others, we will contribute to two key impact goals by 2030:

  1. Injustice and structural inequality is challenged and changed.
  2. A new inclusive generation of leaders and artists.

PLEASE NOTE: We are making some key changes to our strategy in one of our aims - A Fairer Future - in May 2022. Because of this we will temporarily close to new applications in funding priorities for A Fairer Future from 5pm on 19 January. We will reopen to applications in May 2022.

Our priorities

We have seven priorities through which we believe we can best contribute to these goals over the next five years.

If you would like to apply for funding under any of these priorities, please read our Guidance for Support.
