This fund will make a real difference for families and their campaign groups that need financial support during the often long and drawn out struggles for justice that can last for decades.

The fund is making grants available for families and their campaign groups across the UK, to provide them practical assistance to further the work of their campaigns, or to assist them in engaging in other local, regional or national campaigns, events and initiatives.
