The BEARR Trust Small Grants Scheme 2022
Since early 2020, Covid-19 has made existing inequalities worse. Migrant workers and their families are one of the many groups of vulnerable people who have experienced increased hardship over the last two years. For its 2022 Small Grants Scheme, The BEARR Trust invites separate applications for the following grants:
Funding for projects up to £3,000 that propose ways of improving the social welfare of migrant workers and the wellbeing of their families. Projects may support migrant workers in the countries where they are working, and / or their families in their countries of origin.
The BEARR Trust also invites separate applications for up to £1,000 from former grantees only to fund activities to improve the welfare of their staff and volunteers, and to improve their organisation’s resilience. All former grantees will be eligible to apply for this funding, even if not proposing a project under the 2022 theme of helping migrants and their families.
The deadline for applications is Friday 18 February at 23:59 GMT.
Applications are welcome from civil society organisations (CSOs) in any of the countries in which BEARR works, namely: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, or Uzbekistan.
BEARR is most interested in projects that will work in partnership with, or extend collaboration to, other organisations in the same country or in another country, and that take an imaginative or unusual approach to the problems faced by migrant workers and their families. BEARR particularly welcomes applications from new and small CSOs.
A webinar we are organising on Friday 28 January at 1pm (London time) to guide prospective applicants through the process.
