Aims/priorities: Funding is intended to support women-led organisations who are helping victims of male violence to recover and rebuild their lives, and working to improve the safety of women in the UK.

Who can apply? To be eligible, organisations must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be a women’s and/or girls’ organisation. Rosa defines women’s and girls’ organisations as those which are run by, for and with women and girls. This means that organisations will be governed and led by women, with the main object of working with women and girls.
  • Be an organisation delivering a frontline service to women and/or girls who have been affected by male violence and abuse including (but not limited to) domestic violence, coercive control, rape, sexual abuse, forced marriage, ‘honour’ based violence, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), sexual harassment, economic and financial abuse.
  • Undertake activities which are charitable, legal and for the benefit of women and/or girls (but organisations do not need to be registered charities).
  • Have an average annual income over the last three years of between £100,000 and £500,000.
  • Have unrestricted reserves of no more than 12 months expenditure.
  • Have a written governing document.
  • Have a governing body with at least 3 unrelated members.
  • Have a UK-based bank or building society account in the name of the organisation, with at least 2 unrelated signatories.
  • Have an appropriate safeguarding policy in place.

Priority will be given to organisations which are:

  • Led by and for Black and minoritised women and girls.
  • Led by and for disabled women.
  • Led by and for LGBTQ+ women and girls.
  • Operating in the top 20% most disadvantaged areas in the UK.
