2022 grants programme

The Criminal Justice Programme has launched a new grants programme which focuses on improving outcomes and wellbeing for individuals in contact with all parts of the criminal justice system who speak English as a second or additional language (ESL). The programme is open to organisations wishing to make adaptations to existing services to improve their accessibility, or for the provision of specialist, tailored services to meet the needs of speakers of ESL. The programme will work with partners to evaluate and develop these projects, aiming for long-term impact and sustainability.
