Tampon Tax Community Fund
The Tampon Tax Community Fund would like to award grants of between £5,000 an £10,000 to support marginalised women and girls, to help them overcome barriers that may prevent them from fulfilling their potential. The fund will support a variety of projects that make a long-term difference to health, well-being, confidence and social/economic activity, as well as addressing equality. Projects may cover supporting women and girls to learn new skills, building confidence to apply for new jobs or to return to the workplace, teaching women how to look after and improve their mental or physical health and live in good health for longer, or connecting women through building social networks to share experiences and offer support to each other. The fund hopes to target those organisations that have been established by women or girls and/or are led by women and girls, and which have been established with the key aim of working with women and girls only. Please apply before 19th October 2018.
