The ENCISS story: 2010-2014

ENCISS aims to improve accountability and strengthen citizens’ voice, participation in decision-making and access to information. Between October 2010 and September 2013 we awarded 243 grants, worth £3.8m, to a host of organisations. These micro, strategic and project grants went to groups of all shapes and sizes, including civil society organisations  (CSOs) and local councils, to fund initiatives across the ENCISS thematic areas: gender, youth, justice, decentralisation and the 2012 elections. Here we capture stories from phase 3 of the ENCISS programme from across these core theme areas.
