Our mission is to enable women on low incomes to be financially resilient.

All of our funding is directed at meeting this mission. The Smallwood Trust aims to achieve its outcomes through grant-making, evaluating what projects and approaches work best and partnership working.

“The grant gave me a sense of financial security and enabled me to buy items without it I could not have bought, e.g. a washing machine (without for 5 years), replace eyeglasses, replace old desk top, a winter coat and boots etc. I tried to use the money wisely and was grateful for it”
