Grants to Individuals

To help us respond more immediately and effectively to women who need support the most, we are adopting a more targeted approach to our grants to individuals programme in alignment with our new Strategic Plan

Grants to Individuals Programme

As part of our continued plan to transform our grant-making to be community led, the Smallwood Trust Grants to Individuals programme will focus on continued work with our Community Grant Partners. Our Community Grant Partnerships (CGPs) are strategic partnerships that help us shift power for grant making decisions to local community organisations, the majority of which are led by and for women.

Through our work to date we have seen that collaborative working can have a greater impact on supporting women experiencing poverty. Therefore, we will continue to award individual grants through our cohort of c.30 Community Grant Partners.
