Human Rights Project Fund

The Purpose of the Human Rights Project Fund

The Government has made human rights central to its foreign policy. FCO-funded human rights project work makes an important contribution to the achievement of this goal.

The Human Rights Project Fund (HRPF) is one of the FCO's resources for human rights projects around the world. The fund helps FCO departments and missions overseas to realise their human rights objectives, by supporting practical projects promoting human rights on the ground. It is administered by the FCO's Human Rights Policy Department. Since its inception in April 1998, the Fund has supported over 600 projects and allocated more than £26 million in some 90 countries around the world.

However the HRPF is in its last year before being subsumed by the Global Opportunities Fund (GOF). There will therefore be no future bidding rounds under HRPF, bids should be directed to GOF. For further information on GOF criteria, please email
