JRRT is one of 13 funders supporting the Foundation Practice Rating, an initiative led by Friends Provident Foundation to improve practices of Trusts and Foundations on transparency, accountability and diversity. Each year 100 of the UK’s biggest foundations are assessed, including the funders associated with the initiative.
In year 2, JRRT’s overall rating remains unchanged at B. Our rating for diversity is C, accountability B (up from C the year before) and transparency A. Within these we have made improvements on accountability and diversity.
The limited improvements reflect work by the staff team. We aim to make further changes this year, including three commitments sparked by the campaign to prompt participating Trusts to make pledges to improve.
This year, we plan to:
- increase grants to organisations led by people from black and minority ethnic communities;
- publish information on our investment policy;
- and develop and publish a feedback and complaints policy.
