The JRF works in partnership with organisations and researchers, commissioning search and demonstration work in our three strategic areas of poverty, place and empowerment. For more information on the work we do and the funding we offer please refer to the following pages:
The JRF's York Committee makes modest grants in response to applications from charities and other voluntary and not-for-profit organisations.
Entirely separate from the JRF, the Family Fund offers grants for families with disabled children. For more details:
The Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust (JRRT) funds political campaigns in Britain to promote democratic reform, civil liberties and social justice.

(The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is a completely separate organisation.)
All short-listed full proposals are assessed by:
The programme manager and assistant director look at all the proposals received. They remove any that do not meet the brief or that are methodologically weak.
If assessors do not agree over a proposal, or if a proposal is particularly complex, we would bring in other internal or external assessors.
We are currently updating our complaints procedure, due to changes in our senior staff.
In the meantime, any new complaints should be addressed to Julia Unwin, our Chief Executive, who will ensure that they receive an appropriate response.
Discretionary payments may be considered by way of compensation when JRF, or our managing agent, fail to meet our published standards as set out in the Leaseholder Handbook. When making discretionary payments consideration will be given to the level and nature of disruption and inconvenience experienced as a result of the service failure.
