Local Resilience Fund (£1M)

Applications closed

 The purpose of the programme is to work with grassroots organisations in Newham and Hackney who are supporting refugee and migrant women with unmet needs (especially those experiencing further intersectional challenges e.g., LGBTQ+, disability, caring duties, DV, minimal English, minimal formal education, insecure/unregulated work (such as domestic or sex work).

Ideally, this work will strengthen systems, fill gaps and scale success to increase women’s financial resilience and challenge structures which keep refugee and migrant women in poverty.

Programme Duration: The aim is to co-design the fund (Sept ’23 – Feb ’24) by working with organisations and individuals with lived experience: identifying the priorities people feel are under-funded, working out eligibility criteria and general parameters of the fund.  The fund itself will run from March 2024 – February 2028.  The Women’s Budget Group will work with us to provide iterative research and learning as the work progresses.  

Funded by: (Funded by City Bridge Foundation and The Smallwood Trust)
