Closing date: 19 June 2020


We are looking to fund a range of specialist women’s organisations and services to become Smallwood Trust Community Grant Partners. Organisations will be able to use the funds to provide small cash grants (up to £1,000) for individual women to help them overcome personal and financial barriers, helping them to make changes in their lives. We will also fund up to 20% management costs to run the programme.

In this funding round we are accepting applications from:

  • Stoke-on-Trent
  • Liverpool/Merseyside
  • Middlesbrough/Teesside
  • Rural communities in Staffordshire and the Tees Valley

We are also particularly interested in applications from services led by and/or supporting BAME women.

The fund is open to charities, social enterprises and other non-profit organisations who have existing projects that support women to become financially resilient and could offer grants to individual women linked to the following aims: 

  • Employment stability 
  • Financial stability 
  • Housing stability  
  • Mental health and well-being

Organisations can apply for up to £25,000 each year for three years (£75,000 total). We expect to award c.£450,000 in this funding round. The deadline is the 19th June 2020. Successful applicants are expected to be notified in late July 2020. For further information about eligibility and how to apply please visit https://www.smallwoodtrust.org.uk/organisations.
