CAJ granted five year funding from the Paul Hamlyn FoundationFebruary 28, 2023
CAJ is delighted to announce that we have been granted funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation for a five-year period.
A total of £2million was granted to 10 organisations, including CAJ, through the ‘Backbone Fund’, which aims to provide core funding to organisations that provide crucial infrastructure support for the charity, arts, education, migration, and youth sectors.
In a press release, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation described the organisations selected to receive the funding as “vital advocates, connectors and collaborators that strengthen civil society through their efforts”. CAJ is honoured to have been included within this group.
This funding will allow CAJ to move our Immigration Project into our core work programme, reflecting its central importance to our organisation, as well as the continued relevance of examining immigration law and policy in the context of advancing human rights in Northern Ireland.
Immigration Solicitor, Úna Boyd, said: “We really welcome this support from Paul Hamlyn Foundation. This will allow CAJ to continue to drive change forward by making strategic interventions in the particular, complex context of Northern Ireland.”
The Backbone Fund was set up in 2017 and is by invitation only. For more information, please visit: www.phf.org.uk/funds/backbone-fund.
