Charles Hayward Foundation - Social & Criminal Justice - Small Grants


The overall aims of the funding in the social and criminal justice area are to prevent people entering the criminal justice system and to support those already in the system to move on and rebuild their lives.

They fund projects at a local and community level delivering an aspect, or strands, of the following sub-categories:

  • Targeted early intervention programmes aimed at reaching the most troubled and vulnerable families in a community.
  • Preventative and diversionary projects for young people at risk of offending including tailored interventions identifying and addressing the particular needs of girls and young women.
  • Programmes, particularly those with a focus on young offenders, combining prison based and community interventions dealing with rehabilitation of offenders, accommodation and support on release, helping with maintaining family relationships, mentoring, and mapping and creating pathways to employment.
  • Programmes of support directed towards rehabilitating the victims of domestic abuse and criminal exploitation.
