How are you funded?

The Runnymede Trust is funded from three main sources: Grant income from various foundations and trusts (this makes up the majority of our income), donations from individual and organisational supporters, and income from commissioned research work.

We have a donations policy which guides our donation acceptance decisions and we list all donations over £5000 in our annual accounts and publish a list here.

Does the Runnymede Trust provide support for individual cases or experiences of racial bullying and discrimination?

The Runnymede Trust is not a front-line organisation and as a small charity, we do not have the capacity to support individuals who have experienced racial bullying and discrimination. If you need advice or legal help, we suggest visiting Liberty and the JCWI.

Where can I find useful teaching information and resources?

You can find education resources on our website, as well as the publications we have written. We have teaching resources for KS3-5English Literature via Lit in Colour, a partnership between us and Penguin Books UK. You can also find resources via Our Migration Story, our award-winning resources for teachers, students and anyone who is interested in Britain’s migration history.

Does the Runnymede Trust run training courses on anti-racism?

We do not run courses on anti-racism but signpost good practice on anti-racist practices throughout all the work we do.

Where can I find historic Runnymede Trust publications and bulletins?

All our historic publications and bulletins are stored at the Black Cultural Archives. You can contact them via

Does the Runnymede Trust provide funding for projects or post graduate studies?

The Runnymede Trust is a not-for-profit organisation that relies solely on donations which we use for our core work and projects. We are therefore unable to fund individual educational courses.

Does the Runnymede Trust accept interns?

We do not accept interns. This is because we believe that everyone should be paid for their time and work, and all our staff are paid the National Living Wage. Every year we run our Unbound Development Programme which we encourage prospective interns to apply for. See FAQ below

Does Runnymede have a development programme for emerging leaders?

We run a yearly Unbound Development Programme for emerging leaders in the racial justice space. This programme is for people who are keen to further develop their skills and experience.

Where is the Runnymede Trust based and where does it work?

We are based in London, UK but we also work nationally and internationally. You can find our contact information and address on our Contact page.

Does the Runnymede Trust offer space for advertising on its website?
