Our Priorities

We support work that promotes human dignity and defends the human rights of the most marginalised and excluded people.

We fund small to medium sized organisations
who work in these priority areas:

Migrants and Refugees

The Justice System and Penal Reform

Human rights and Access to Justice

Why these priorities?

Our focus is on supporting the most marginalised and excluded groups in the UK, who are often from communities experiencing poverty and racial injustice.

People who migrate, are refugees or seeking asylum, and people in contact with the justice system, are often the subject of negative public narrative – and work in these areas can be especially difficult to fundraise for.

In supporting access to justice, we recognise that high-quality legal advice and representation is a powerful tool to help bring about both individual redress and systemic change. Upholding the human rights framework is a means of providing overall protection for everyone.

If your work falls outside the priorities or criteria of the A B Charitable Trust, this page has more information on other sources of funding.
