We are pleased to release our latest report on the Women’s Sector Resilience Fund supported with funding from DCMS.
We will provide further information on Phase 2 of the Fund over the summer.
You can view our Final Report on the DCMS funding here.
The fund was created as an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic to help women’s sector organisations survive and continue providing vital services.
The analysis reveals that 41,000 women have been supported through these grants, with a total of £2m being awarded since November 2020. In total, 83 grants were awarded with 73% of these organisations being women-led.
Paul Carbury, Chief Executive of the Smallwood Trust, said: “This report highlights the importance of the women’s sector and how the funding helped their response to the pandemic during such a difficult time for frontline organisations and their beneficiaries. We are building on our learning from the emergency phase and aim to launch additional programmes this year for longer-term funding.”
