A B Charitable Trust

Registered charity number 1000147

The A B Charitable Trust (ABCT) is an independent, UK based grant-making organisation founded in 1990 that is concerned with promoting and defending human dignity.

ABCT supports charities that defend human rights and promote respect for vulnerable individuals whatever their circumstances.

The Trust is particularly interested in charities that work with marginalised and excluded people in society, with a focus on:

  • migrants, refugees and asylum seekers
  • prisoners and penal reform
  • human rights, particularly access to justice

If you are a charity working in any of these fields, please check our funding guidelines. You are welcome to put in an application.

ABCT very occasionally undertakes special initiatives related to work in these fields.

For its 25th anniversary in 2015 the Trust made a gift to establish the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at Oxford University.
