What for?

Power and Accountability programme

Quakers have a strong commitment to equality. We want to support people to create a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are responsive and accountable to wider society and aligned with the long-term public interest.  JRCT wishes to prioritise support for charitable work on the following issues:

  1. Strengthening corporate accountability
  2. Strengthening democratic accountability
  3. Encouraging responsible media


We anticipate that the majority of our funding will fall under one of the five priority areas specified above. However, if you judge that your application directly relates to more than one area, and are able to clearly demonstrate this in your proposal, we will consider a cross-cutting application.
