Women’s Financial Empowerment Fund

Applications closed

The Women’s Financial Empowerment Fund supported by Barclays is a crucial response to closing the gaps in provision for women on low incomes.

This funds nine of Smallwood’s Community Grant Partners (CGPs), frontline organisations delivering vital services. They provide small grants to financially vulnerable women, while at the same time, supporting them with relevant and appropriate services.

Four of the above CGPs have been awarded additional funds to provide employability support for women who are out of work, looking for work or who need to learn some basic skills, increasing their proximity to the labour market.

Another eight partners will deliver Barclays LifeSkills Learning Opportunities, one-to-one or in group sessions, using free online resources to move women closer to and into employment, while being mindful of good mental health and wellbeing.

Programme Duration: May 2023 – 31 December 2025

Funded by: Barclays
