Rosa's New Rise fund

Aims/priorities: This funding is intended for specialist organisations led by and for Black and minoritised women and girls in the UK so that they are in a stronger position to survive, thrive and grow into the future. Applicants need to be working across Rosa’s four pillars of work:

  • Economic justice
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Leadership and representation
  • Safety.

The funding is for organisational development work relating to areas such as strategy, governance, leadership, alliances and partnerships, funding, demonstrating impact and systems and processes.

Who can apply? Applications will be accepted from not-for-profit organisations run by, for and with Black and minoritised women and girls in the UK, including:

  • Registered charity
  • Community interest company
  • Not for profit company limited by guarantee
  • Unregistered charity/not for profit organisation
  • Charitable incorporated organisation/Scottish charitable incorporated organisation
  • Industrial and provident community benefit society.

There is particular interest in proposals from organisations that:

  • Are user led.
  • Work with and for especially marginalised Black and minoritised women and girls, for example those with no recourse to public funds, refugee and asylum seekers, women experiencing homelessness, women and girls using drugs and alcohol, women and girls who have been trafficked, those with a disability, older women, LBGT+ women and girls.
  • Operate in less economically resilient communities within the UK.

Grant amount: Grants of up to £40,000 are available for two year funding beginning in July 2022 and ending by July 2024. It is expected that between 25 and 30 grants will be awarded. The first 50% of the grant will be paid up front in July 2022 and the second 50% in July 2023 upon receipt of a short interim report.
