New funding round launched

15 February 2018

Women’s groups based in the Midlands and coastal areas of the North of England are being invited to apply for seed funding to trial and test new ideas and imaginative approaches to support women along the employability pathway. 

The Women First Innovation Fund is open to charities, social enterprises and other non-profit organisations in the targeted geographical areas who have ideas or projects that support our mission of enabling women to become financially resilient.

Organisations can apply for grants of £5,000 to £10,000. We expect to award 10-15 grants in this round.

“We are pleased that with support from the Tampon Tax Fund we will be able to award additional grants to projects that are helping to improve the economic and emotional well-being of women. We look forward to receiving innovative project proposals that can help build the skills, confidence and aspirations of women.”

The deadline for completed applications is 5pm on Friday 11th May 2018.
