As a Quaker Trust, we believe that peace and security are built on values of equality, human rights, justice and environmental sustainability.

This program aims to support people to create a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are responsive and accountable to wider society and aligned with the long-term public interest.

Funding priorities:
a) Strengthening corporate accountability;
b) Strengthening democratic accountability;
c) Encouraging responsible media.

JRCT is interested in funding work which:
> is about removing problems through radical solutions, and not simply about making problems easier to live with;
> has a clear sense of objectives, and of how to achieve them;
> is innovative and imaginative; and
> where the grant has a good chance of making a difference.

Under this programme, JRCT will consider applications for national work in the UK, or elsewhere in Europe for work at a pan-European level.
