Aims/priorities: The final funding round is taking place in 2021-22.
This year, the funding is for projects which focus on one of two categories:
- Violence against women and girls.
- General programme (for which the Government has identified a number of sub-themes).
There is particular interest in applications from specialist women's networks whose projects include making onward grants to other women's charitable organisations.
The Government is seeking to award funds to a range of organisations that collectively support the whole of the UK.
Who can apply? Individual organisations or formal consortia of charitable, benevolent and philanthropic organisations based and working in the UK can apply.
- Registered charities.
- Charitable Incorporated Organisations.
- Community Interest Companies (registered at Companies House or CIC regulator).
- Co-operatives that can provide their governing documents.
- Independent Provident Societies that can provide their governing documents.
- None of the above but the organisation has a formal constitution (set of rules) or governing document which shows its objectives and management structure.
Individual organisations do not need to have a national remit but must demonstrate how proposed activities will be delivered across a number of regions or, where possible, more than one of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Grant amount: The minimum grant is £350,000. There is no maximum grant.
Grants may be for 12 to 18-month projects. All activities must be concluded and funds spent by 31 March 2023.
The grant must not represent more than 50% of the applicant’s or consortia’s collective annual income.
Application process: The guidance notes and the application form are available on the GOV.UK website.
Deadline: Applications for the final funding round will be accepted from 21 May 2021 to midnight on 4 July 2021.
