With funds from the Tampon Tax Fund, Rosa and Smallwood Trust have collaborated to create the Women Thrive Fund. They are distributing grants of up to £40,000 to specialist women’s organisations across the UK.

This programme will fund work supporting the UK’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged and/or under-represented women and girls to:

  • Improve their mental health and wellbeing, gaining confidence, tools, skills and support to sustain those improvements; and/or
  • Improve their financial resilience, increasing their routes out of poverty, gaining confidence, tools, skills and support to secure a stable financial future.

The fund also seeks to build stronger women’s organisations that are more sustainable and better able to meet the needs of women and girls.

“The fund responds directly to what women’s and girls’ organisations have told us throughout the pandemic: that declining mental health, increased risk of emotional trauma and increased poverty levels are their biggest concerns for women and girls across the UK.”

Rosa and Smallwood Trust will jointly host ‘How to Apply’ webinars to help organisations develop their applications. Follow the links on their website to book.
