The Tampon Tax Community Fund aims to support women in overcoming barriers that prevent them from fulfilling their potential.

The programme will benefit women and girls, investing in a wide range of projects, that make tangible and long-term difference to health, well-being, confidence and social/economic activity, as well as addressing equality gaps.

This programme aims to fund small-scale interventions, which will make a considerable difference to the lives and happiness of women and girls by raising the aspirations of girls and young women and combating the influences that affect their confidence.

Grants of £5,000 up to £10,000 available.
