Supporting your EDI projects & investments

If you already have - or are thinking about setting up – a programme, investment or other project that furthers Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), we can help you to structure, achieve and sustain your purpose and impact.

If tackling EDI issues is part of your charitable or organisational purpose, we have a wealth of experience of advising on the legal issues to consider, as well as putting the right policies and procedures in place so you can focus on doing what you do best.

If you are an investor who wants to reduce inequality through investment, we can advise on designing and implementing investments that seek to deliver positive equality impact.

How we help
  • We advise on Equality Act and other legal considerations when designing EDI-focused grants and other programmes
  • We provide support in structuring equality impact investing (EII) projects, including racial equality and gender lens investing
  • We help to design grant and investment processes, terms and agreements so that they are fair, balanced and seek to minimise EDI and other power imbalances between funders and recipients
  • We create action plans for positive action for charities and other organisations
  • We provide accessible legal support for grass-root organisations which focus on tackling EDI and other inequality issues
  • We advise investors on how to embed EDI best practices within the organisations they invest in
