Consultancy support is available for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) led and specialist organisations working with, or interested in working with, people in contact with the criminal justice system and their families.
Eligible organisations can access up to five days of support which will be tailored to their organisational and strategic needs such as fundraising strategy, partnership development, HR or illustrating impact.
Clinks is administering this funding on behalf of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) and is working in partnership with Eastside Primetimers to identify the consultants and training support required.
This support is part of a wider piece of work being conducted by MoJ and HMPPS to promote and develop opportunities for BAME led and specialist organisations in the voluntary sector to engage with current and future commissioning opportunities.
One aim of the funding is to help organisations identify and overcome any potential barriers to engaging with the new probation arrangements and other statutory partners, but Clinks hopes it can extend beyond this to more generally build the capacity of specialist organisations led by and focused on supporting the needs of BAME people in the criminal justice system, including diversion and early intervention in England and Wales.
In order to be eligible for this opportunity:
- You should be a voluntary organisation (registered charity or incorporated social enterprise) operating in England and Wales
- Your annual income must not exceed £250,000
- You should be a BAME-led or BAME-specialist organisation
Organisations do not have to have worked in the criminal justice system before to apply.
