The Oglesby Charitable Trust has just launched a new £275,000 fund focused on supporting people who are refugees or seeking asylum in the North West of England.
Spotlight is their first fund that is open to proposals, rather than invitation-only. They hope that this approach creates an opportunity for the learning, ideas and contributions of those working at the grass roots to be heard – enabling even the smallest organisations to tell them where their support would be most effective.
They have set up a simple application process, consisting initially of a two-page outline proposal. Applications can be for one-off or multi-year projects up to a total value of £20,000 per year, and must be for direct work with people who are refugees or seeking asylum. The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 4th February.
