The Baring Foundation announced in October 2016 the launch of a second round of funding in two open funds under their Strengthening the Voluntary Sector programme launched in 2015.
This programme supports effective use of the law and human rights based approaches by the voluntary sector in the United Kingdom to tackle discrimination and disadvantage. It is a collaboration with The Legal Education Foundation and The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. It focuses on activity in all countries of the United Kingdom. It does not support international work.
