In 2022, Henry Duncan Grants will fund organisations that can demonstrate that they are supporting children and young people (aged 6-26 years) to overcome the impacts of inequality in their lives. In recognition of the historic inequity of funding, Corra will commit around 30% of the fund budget to support organisations that are led by Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities.
There are two priority areas for funding this year:
- Organisations that are supporting children and young people to shape their own lives.
- Organisations that are supporting children and young people to develop skills for the future.
Henry Duncan Grants provide unrestricted funding. You can use the money to deliver any aspect of your work with children and young people, including projects or the general running costs for example paying staff, rent and overheads (heating etc).
The fund will focus on a different theme each year:
- 2022: Supporting children and young people facing challenges
- 2023: Increasing opportunities for disabled people and people with long term conditions
- 2024: Supporting people experiencing inequality or discrimination

Who can apply
In addition to the general Henry Duncan Grants eligibility criteria, organisations will have access to the ‘ring-fenced’ funding pot if you fit both of these criteria:
- 75% or more of the Board of Trustees/ Management Committee self-identify as being from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic community AND
- 50% of the senior staff self-identify as being from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic community, where staff exist.
Organisations that do not meet this criteria can still apply via the general Henry Duncan Grants programme. See the Corra website for full details.
