Women’s Groups across the UK Raise their Voices with Help from Innovative New Programme
Rosa, the UK Fund for Women and Girls, has today helped 24 grassroots women’s organisations across the UK bring gender equality for all women a small step closer. Rosa’s innovative new grants programme Voices from the Frontline, aims to give women the tools, skills and confidence to speak up for change. Grants of up to £2,000 each are awarded today for work designed to influence positive change across all four of Rosa’s priority pillars: leadership and representation, safety and violence, health and wellbeing and economic justice.
Please see a full list of grants recipients: here.
Successful projects will raise the voice of young women with policymakers, challenge perceptions of women affected by violence, promote media representation of women in sports, inspire girls to get into STEM work, and support of female asylum seekers, among other benefits.
Voices from the Frontline has been made possible through the generous donations of a number of organisations and individuals including Aviva Women’s Network and BAPS Charity, as well as private funders and Rosa’s supporters.
Rosa aims to make another round of the Voices from the Frontline Programme funding available in summer, 2016. Contributions to this round can be made by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
