Rosa Launches ‘Voices from the Frontline’

Rosa, the UK Fund for \women and Girls announces the launch of its new grants programme, Voices from the Frontline. Supporting charitable advocacy work, Voices from the Frontline will increase the skills, capacity and credibility of women who wish to challenge gender inequality and promote awareness and social justice. Applications will be open until the 11th of January, 2016.

The programme will invest in UK women’s projects, connecting women with each other to gather and share intelligence about effective approaches to combating gender inequality. Voices from the Frontline will empower individuals from some of the 20,000 women’s charities in the UK to articulate and champion the change that they want to see at a local and national level.

Executive Director of Rosa, Samantha Rennie unveiled the funding programme at Rosa’s seventh birthday event, ‘Celebrate Rosa.’ During her address, Samantha highlighted Rosa’s four priority areas: leadership and representation, health, safety and economic justice. She went on to say,

“Rosa has reviewed the evidence of inequality in the UK today and it makes a compelling case for change. But evidence alone is not enough. The voices of women affected by inequality needs to be amplified and heard. Rosa wants to make this happen.”

Voices from the Frontline has been made possible through the generous donations of a number of organisations and individuals.
