Social Justice Funders Group

Who we are

We are a cross sector group of funding initiatives concerned with the role of the law in addressing inequalities and achieving a more just society.

The Social Justice Funders Group (SJFG) includes those who are funders of not-for-profit legal advice, and broader justice related tools, interventions, initiatives and policy work and others who are interested in learning more about the role of the law as a tool for social change.

What we do

We share updates on our activities and future plans to ensure our work is coordinated and we are making the best use of the experience, expertise, and learning generated by our collective knowledge.

The Group uses quarterly meetings to enable knowledge, learning, and opportunity exchange, and:

  • Learn more about key issues faced by marginalised communities and the role that advice support can play in addressing these issues,
  • Engage with new learning relevant to your funding aims and interests and understand best practice around funding advice initiatives,
  • Keep up to date with who is doing what, and benefit from sharing experiences around the challenges and opportunities facing grant makers, and
  • Explore the potential for coordinated or collaborative activity in areas of shared interest where appropriate.
