Deadline 4th March 2019
A limited number of grants are available for local projects in specific parts of England which enable women on low incomes to access new skills, training, confidence building and employment opportunities.
The objective of the fund is to identify and document good practice that is achieving outcomes for women on low incomes by building their skills, confidence and aspirations to enable them to enter into employment.
The funding is for existing projects and ongoing work. Projects should be proven and able to evidence impact and good practice. This includes interventions that are not currently documented extensively or are being implemented in a new context.
It is expected that 10 to 15 projects will be awarded in this round with an average grant of £10,000 to £15,000. Funding will be awarded over one year initially.
The grants can cover revenue costs for staffing/sessional fees, travel, training, resources and other related project delivery costs. A contribution to project overhead costs can also be made.
Applications will be accepted from charities, social enterprises and other non-profit organisations that are working with women in this area (Hull & Humberside)
The deadline for applications is 5pm on 4 March 2019.
