Oxford Extinction Rebellion September 2020 Inclusion and Hardship Fund Application
The Inclusion and Hardship Fund is aimed at enabling Oxford XR rebels, from under-represented groups, to participate in XR events and activities, by providing financial support. This includes people on a low income, people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, young people (16-18), people with disabilities, LGBTQ and other people covered by the Equality Act.
If money is an important factor hindering your full participation in the September Rebellion in London, you can use this form to request financial assistance from the fund. This offer is only for rebels living in Oxford (or nearby villages) or for people who have been active in XR Oxford. Details of sums that can be claimed are below. Applications received before 19th Aug will be processed in time for the end of August. The fund will remain open after this date until the money runs out.
