Empowering Women Fund
Funding is available to support the sustainability of women’s groups in local communities and to help women get to an empowered position.
A national funding programme is accepting applications from small women’s groups and organisations in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland to support the development of innovative ways of empowering women in their local area, and to build organisations’ capacity.
The following levels of funding are available:
- Seed Funding grants of £500 to £1,000 are available to small women’s groups to establish and run micro women’s empowerment projects in their local area that support women to build skills and confidence, and decrease social isolation.
- Women’s Sector grants of £1,000 to £25,000 are available for women’s groups and organisations to develop capacity to respond to changing needs in their communities and run projects over a fixed duration of at least six months.
All grants must be spent within 12 months of award.
The deadline for applications is 28 May 2021 (5pm).
