Grants of £5,000 to £10,000 (or £15,000 in London) are available for a duration of up to 12 months for charities and community groups to support women and girls of all ages to build their skills, confidence and self-esteem.
Local not-for-profit organisations across the country can apply now for a grant to run local projects and services directly benefiting women and girls in the UK who are facing issues such as period poverty, domestic and sexual abuse, mental health and long-term unemployment
Projects must meet one or more of the Fund’s following objectives:
• Building skills and confidence – supporting women and girls to learn new skills, giving them the ability to apply for new jobs and/or return to the workplace
• Improving health and well-being – teaching women how to look after and improve their own mental or physical health and live in good health for longer
• Building social networks – connecting women to others they can share similar experiences with, supporting them to feel less lonely, more valued, more able to pass on that support.
The funding can be used for volunteer expenses, activity costs, and project staff/sessional staff costs.
The closing date for applications is midday on 11 October 2019.
