The Centre for Social Justice works closely with an Alliance of almost 400 grassroot charities and social enterprises as they are critical to their mission, both in their vital work supporting people out of poverty and through feeding their insights and ideas into their policy work.

CSJ Awards 2020 is an annual, high profile award ceremony that honours the best grassroot, poverty-fighting charities and social enterprises across Britain. The event is designed to give six Award Winners unique opportunities to connect with other people passionate about furthering the cause of social justice in Britain.

The award judges are particularly interested in organisations that:
- Tackle the root causes of poverty
- Intervene early to prevent poverty
- Are ambitious for the lives of their clients
- Find innovative ways to combat poverty
- Have the potential to scale the impact of their work
- Have a turnover of less than £2 million
- Are based and working with people living in the UK.

1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
