Institute for Social Justice

Community Research Grants

Our grants support research partnerships between York St John University and the community.

The Institute for Social Justice supports research partnerships between York St John University and community-led organisations in the voluntary, charity and social enterprise (VCSE) sector.

Our objective is to ensure that the research we undertake is relevant and impactful; and to conduct research in an ever more open and democratic manner. 

To better enable this our Community Research Grant programme invites VCSE organisations to propose themes of issues that are important to them and which they would like help researching.

Grant applications open 2024/25

We are looking for proposals from VCSE organisations for our 2024/25 Grants.
