Women’s Financial Empowerment Fund

The Women’s Financial Empowerment Fund aims to help these women at risk of poverty build key financial and employability skills together with improvements in confidence and mental health. As part of their Citizenship Strategy, the support provided by Barclays LifeSkills will:

  • Strengthen and expand nine Community Grant Partners to deliver vital services to financially vulnerable women providing financial support in the form of small grants, as well as help around housing, debt, money management, mental health and employment. 
  • Provide additional funding to four of the nine Community Grant Partners to deliver an Employability Programme alongside existing services, helping vulnerable women to move closer to the labour market with a view to securing sustainable employment opportunities.  
  • Fund eight partners to deliver Barclays LifeSkills content, alongside existing services and interventions. This focuses on economic outcomes, skills and confidence for the women most at risk of poverty. 

Programme duration: May 2023 – 31 December 2025

Funded by: Barclays
