Rosa's Woman to Woman Fund Accepting Applications for Final Round

Rosa's Woman to Woman Fund has launched its third and final call for applications to support women and girls in the UK.

The Woman to Woman Fund has been created by Rosa with funding from the Tampon Tax Fund which was set up to support women’s charities through the VAT raised on sanitary products. Rosa has been awarded £2.2 million from VAT receipts on sanitary products, via HM Treasury for a programme of grants and support to small grassroots women’s groups.

The Fund supports charitable women’s sector organisations with an annual income of less than £100,000. It is targeted at projects that address the critical needs of women and girls in the UK.

For its third and final call for applications, and in celebration of the centenary of the women’s vote, this funding round will have a renewed focus on leadership and representation.

Grants of between £5,000 and £25,000 are available for organisations that:

  • Address the critical needs of women and girls that miss out the most, including: marginalised populations, BME women, lesbian, bisexual or transgender women and girls, women and girls with disabilities, older women, homeless women, survivors of gender violence, women in prison and ex-offenders, and other underserved and disadvantaged groups of women.
  • Operate in less economically resilient towns, cities and rural areas within the UK.

The Fund is particularly interested in work that increases women’s representation, skills building and civic engagement.

The deadline for applications is 25 January 2018 (5pm).

Groups can access more information on the Rosa website.
