Women Thrive Fund

Grants up to £40K are available to grassroots and specialist women's and girls' organisations that are working to enable women and girls to improve their mental health and wellbeing and/or improve their financial resilience.

The funding is intended to enable women's and girls' organisations to respond to the crisis and support women and girls to overcome the barriers they face due to the pandemic.

  • £15,000 for organisations with a turnover up to and including £200,000.

Grants will be paid in August 2021 and must be fully spent by 31 December 2022.

Applicants can also ask for an additional 25% of their grant request for costs which will make their organisation stronger for the future.

N.B. Applicant organisations must be led by, for and with women and/or girls.

Priorities include:
