Funding

The Women Thrive Fund

A fund to support organisations which enable women and girls to improve their mental health and wellbeing and/or improve their financial resilience.

Delivered by Rosa and Smallwood Trust, the Women Thrive Fund is distributing grants of up to £40,000 to specialist women’s organisations across the UK.

Organisations should be working to enable women and girls to improve their mental health and wellbeing and/or improve their financial resilience. The fund responds directly to what women’s and girls’ organisations have told them 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.

Organisations can apply for:

  • Grants of up to £15,000 with a turnover of £200,000 inclusive
  • Grants of up to £40,000 with a turnover of £200,001 – £999,999.

Organisations can also apply for an additional 25% of their grant request for work which will strengthen their organisation.

Funding is available to spend until December 2022.

The deadline for applications to the Women Thrive Fund is 5:00pm on Thursday March 25th. 

Who can apply

The Fund particularly welcome proposals from women’s organisations that address the critical needs of women and girls who miss out the most, including: Black and minoritised women and girls, disabled women and girls, LGBT+ women and girls, financially vulnerable women and girls and women on low incomes, older women, women and girls using drugs or alcohol and other underserved and disadvantaged groups of women and girls.

What can be funded

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