Community Grant Partnership Programme

This award winning programme is a strategic initiative that helps us to shift power for grant decision-making to local community organisations, the majority of which are led by and for women. Smallwood provides the funds, support and an operational toolkit to help local community-led groups to provide immediate financial support through individual grants. Local partners have autonomy on how they can spend the funds to benefit women.

We currently have 28 partners who provide grants to financially vulnerable women in their local area. Services are offered alongside the grant to help overcome personal and financial barriers, helping women to make changes in their lives to move closer to financial resilience. This holistic approach is based on the following four objectives:

  • Employment stability
  • Financial stability
  • Housing stability
  • Mental health and wellbeing

Programme duration: July 2020 – January 2026

Funded by: The Smallwood Trust
