Apply for a Grant

SolidariTee Legal Aid Grant 2020 - to be disbursed between December 2020 and August 2021

Applications for this grant have now closed - thank you to all those who have applied. The details of the previous grant application process have been left here to provide an idea of likely future grant-making procedures. 


Our Grant Making Policy outlines guidance for the relevant details and can be found 


Applications should be sent to by 1st May 2020. We aim to notify all applicants as to the outcome of their application by the 1st of June 2020. Applications will not be assessed on a rolling basis and therefore applications submitted earlier will not be subject to any advantages.


We are currently not in a position to fund grants of above £60,000. If you apply for a grant of under £20,000, this may be disbursed via a lump sum payment as early as December 2020. For all grants above £20,000, these will be made in instalments such that the grant is disbursed in its entirety no later than August 2021, with the first instalment occurring no earlier than December 2020. If you have a strong preference and rationale as to the timeline of these instalments please outline this in your application. 


Please note that applications received after midnight on the 1st May 2020 will not be considered in this application cycle.

We encourage organisations planning sustainable solutions to get in contact with us. We are happy to hear from groups creating innovative fundraising ideas in the form of prospective proposals. We prize high organisational capacity, transparency and adherence to deadlines as indicators of organisational strength.


Applications for the COVID-19 Emergency Grant are now closed, and Kitrinos Healthcare have been chosen as the recipient of this grant. Details of the application criteria can be found below.

The COVID-19 outbreak poses an enormous threat to communities around the world and especially to the most vulnerable. As a result, SolidariTee is seeking grant applications from organisations who are working to protect refugees from this outbreak.


We are in a position to offer a small grant to fund a project of up to £10,000. Priority will be given to applicants who can demonstrate: the efficacy and scientific basis of their planned response, specialist knowledge of their field of operations, how their project fits into the greater humanitarian response in their field of operations, and considerations of sustainability and long-term impact where applicable.  


Applications should be sent to by 23.00 GMT on Friday 27th March. We will aim to notify all applicants as to the outcome of their application by Wednesday 1st April. Further consultation via Zoom or telephone will take place on Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st March. 


Please note that organisations are free to apply for both the COVID-19 grant and our main 2020-21 grant (see below), and the two will be assessed independently. Please see our Grant Making Policy for further guidance. Please note that point 2.2 will not apply to the provision of a COVID-19 response grant and the suggested timeline will be in accordance with what is listed above.
