Rosa: Justice & Equality Fund

Health & Social Care

The Justice and Equality Fund (JEF), managed by Rosa, aims to bring an end to the culture of harassment, abuse and impunity by resourcing an expert network of advice, support and advocacy organisations and projects.

Funding for the JEF comes from generous donations from individuals from all walks of life via the go-fund-me page which states that “We are waking up to the full scale of systemic abuse based on gender and power – abuse that hurts us all. Like all big problems, it needs big, bold solutions. We have created the Justice and Equality Fund, to create the far-reaching personal, social, legal and policy changes that will ensure everyone can feel safe at work, at play and at home. Together we can end the culture of harassment, abuse and impunity.”

There are three programmes under the new fund:

  1. Advice and Support: Grants between £25,000 – £200,000 (over one to three years) are awarded to increase access to support, signposting and expert legal advice for victims/survivors of sexual harassment and abuse. Mainly revenue costs.
  2. Now’s the Time: Grants between £5,000 – £100,000 are awarded to organisations who are seeking to establish what works in changing the culture of impunity and preventing future harassment and abuse. Cross-sector partnerships are encouraged for applications up to £25,000 and required for over.  
  3. Changing the Conversation: Grants are available to devise a Strategic Communications Network across approximately eight women’s organisations. Funds will be used on salaries to create this post or to add additional responsibility to an existing one. Rosa said “Our goal to end the culture of harassment, abuse and impunity is ambitious. We recognise that robust data and compelling stories from the grants we make are part of what is needed, as well as increased capacity and skills within existing specialist organisations. We also need innovative communications techniques to both to ‘shift the dial’ and challenge assumptions around what is acceptable behaviour in different contexts in the UK.”
