£7,500 vailable for social justice action

The British Council is looking for UK local delivery partners for its
Active Citizens programme.

Grants of up to £7,500 are available for people who are running
voluntary or community sector organisations, or networks supporting
active participation and social justice (such as tackling poverty and
inequality) in their communities, and who are interested in sharing
and learning from others worldwide.

The programme aims to connect organisations and people involved in
local community initiatives and offers them the chance to gain an
international perspective on the work they are doing and to contribute
to social research on global themes, develop cross-cultural engagement
skills and international professional networks.

Deadline: 9 July 2010
