Rainbow Project

Rainbow Project

Case study


The Rainbow Project is a charity that works to promote the physical, mental and emotional health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender people and their families in Northern Ireland, as well as those questioning their orientation or gender.


JRCT provides a grant under its Northern Ireland programme for the Rainbow Project’s Policy and Advocacy Manager.  This post is engaged with developing policy based on objective need, lobbying for progressive change within government and statutory agencies and advocating for a human-rights based approach to creating a diverse, pluralist society. The work fits with the Trust’s Northern Ireland funding priorities of promoting human rights and equality, and strengthening the voices of marginalised groups in public policy-making.
