Rosa the UK Fund for women and girls will launch the second funding round of the “Women to Women” Fund in May 2017.
Local women’s organisations across the UK will be able to apply for grants of up to £25,000 to support a wide range of charitable work that benefits women. This can range from:
- Building confidence and leadership skills
- Tackling harassment and violence
- Training in financial literacy and increasing engagement in decision-making; etc.
Rosa plans to support at least 100 local grassroots women’s organisations across the UK and the grants are available for groups with an income of under £100,000 per year. Rosa especially wants to support groups that work with disadvantaged communities or in disadvantaged areas. Grants can pay for core work, as well as mobilising volunteers, leadership development, communications and advocacy.
Grants will be awarded over 3 rounds until March 2018. Round 3 of the Woman to Woman fund is due to open in in September 2017.
