We are proud to announce the opening of our second small grants funding round aimed at tackling Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the UK. Applications are open from Monday 9 December to Monday 20 January.
Funded by Comic Relief, the grants of between £500 and £5,000 will be available to voluntary and community organisations across the UK.
The grants will help funded organisations to:
- become more confident, more knowledgeable and more skilled in tackling FGM
within their communities;
- improve their skills in engaging with, and lobbying, statutory bodies to encourage
appropriate responses to FGM;
- contribute to a unified movement across the UK bringing together a range of
organisations engaged in tackling FGM.
Grants will be available for training, mentoring, research, networking, and delivering advice and support services.
We are particularly keen to support activities taking place in the Home Office dispersal areas, i.e. Glasgow, Greater Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham, Bradford, Hull, Sunderland, Leeds, Nottingham, Coventry, and Plymouth.
