Rosa’s Woman to Woman Fund Opens for Round 2

Rosa, the UK Fund for Women and Girls, is inviting applications from across the UK to round two of its Woman to Woman Fund.

Rosa's Woman to Woman Fund offers grants of between £5,000 and £25,000 to local grassroots women's organisations with an income of less than £100,000. Rosa especially wants to support groups that work with disadvantaged communities or in disadvantaged areas in the UK.

The funding is for proposals that:

  • Address the critical needs of women and girls that miss out the most, including: marginalised populations, BME women, lesbian, bisexual or transgender women and girls, women and girls with disabilities, older women, homeless women, survivors of gender violence, women in prison and ex-offenders, and other underserved and disadvantaged groups of women.
  • Operate in less economically resilient towns, cities and rural areas within the UK.

The work must fit into one of Rosa's four pillars which underpin the issues facing women and girls today:

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

Although in round two there is particular interest in the pillar of economic justice, applications across the four pillars will be considered.

Rosa is particularly interested in funding work that increases impact and sustainability. Therefore grants can pay for core costs such as staff salaries, office rent and staff training; as well as project costs such as drop-in support services, mobilising volunteers and outreach. Rosa is committed to supporting voluntary sector organisations pay the living wage. Grants made towards staff costs will be paid a minimum of a Living Wage where possible.

No fewer than 100 groups will be supported. Any grants awarded must be spent within 12 months of receipt. In addition to grants, Rosa will provide additional support that women' groups say they need, including mentoring, training and networking opportunities.

Charitable organisations in the UK can apply as long as they are a local women's sector organisation which is not part of a national enterprise, with an income of less than £100,000 per year or employ less than two full-time paid members of staff.

There is a two stage application process. The deadline for stage one applications is 6 July 2017 (5pm).

Full details can be found on the Rosa website.
