Organisations that are non-profitable and run predominantly by, for and with women can now apply for grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 to meet short-term funding needs for a period of up to six months.

To be eligible, organisations do not have to be registered charities, but their activities must be charitable, legal and for the benefit of women in one or more of the following areas:

Economic justice

Health and wellbeing

Leadership and representation


Applications are particularly welcome from women’s organisations that:

Address the critical needs of women and girls that miss out the most, including:

Marginalised populations

Older women

Homeless women

Survivors of gender violence

Women in prison and ex-offenders

Operate in less economically resilient towns, cities and rural areas within the UK.

Both existing and new work can be funded. Eligible organisations can apply for unrestricted funding towards core costs but the application must directly relate to challenges emerging from the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis.
