Clinks Covid-19 winter support grants

Voluntary organisations working in the criminal justice system with an annual income under £250,000 can apply to Clinks now for grant funding to support their vital work through the winter. The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 4 January 2021, although early applications are encouraged.

This summer Clinks was able to distribute £300,000 to small and medium organisations on behalf of Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). However, the organisation’s research showed that organisations are not fully confident about their long-term sustainability and there is growing concern about the future availability of funding from trusts and foundations and cuts to government funding.

After working closely with HMPPS and MoJ to advocate for the sector, Clinks is pleased to be able to distribute a further £143,500 on behalf of HMPPS and MoJ to support small and specialist organisations. There’s a particular focus on organisations that are black, Asian and minority ethnic led and focussed, and those supporting people with protected characteristics.
