Rosa and Smallwood Trust are working together to administer the Women Thrive Fund to women’s and girls’ organisations in the UK. With £1.79 million of Tampon Tax money, this partnership fund will give grants of up to £40,000 to organisations supporting women and girls to improve their mental health and wellbeing and/or improve their financial resilience.
This programme will fund work supporting the UK’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged and/or under-represented women and girls to:
- Improve their mental health and well-being, gaining confidence, tools, skills and support to sustain those improvements; and/or
- Improve their financial resilience, increasing their routes out of poverty, gaining confidence, tools, skills and support to secure a stable financial future.
The funders are particularly looking for proposals from organisations that address the needs of women and girls who miss out the most, including: Black and minoritised women and girls, disabled women and girls, LGBT+ women and girls, financially vulnerable women and girls, and older women.
The Women Thrive Fund is giving grants of up to:
- £15,000 for organisations with a turnover of £200,000 inclusive
- £40,000 for organisations with a turnover of £200,001 – £999,999
Organisations can also apply for an additional 25% of their grant request for work which will strengthen their organisation.
