Report of the Managing Director of BHE


The Board considered a report of the Managing Director of BHE seeking agreement for an Alliance Partnership, with a grant of £1.5 million towards a new programme run by the Baring Foundation to promote and develop the use of human rights-based approaches for London-focused civil society organisations, using international and domestic human rights laws to support practical, real-world protections for individuals and communities facing discrimination and disadvantage. The Board noted that the proposals had been endorsed by the Grants Committee at its meeting on 5 December 2022 and recommended to this Board for approval.
