Women’s Health Community Fund

Despite gaining momentum and media attention, women's health is still overlooked and underfunded. We believe more action is needed to improve education and awareness on common health issues and we need your help!

The Women's Health Community Fund is designed to support small, grassroots organisations and community groups to deliver health information and support to women, girls and people from underrepresented groups. We are seeking projects that address the following key points;

  • Projects that aim to improve information, education and support for menstrual health, related gynaecological conditions e.g. PCOS, endometriosis, adenomyosis, fibroids, PMDD, and menopause.
  • Support people and groups that are often underrepresented in mainstream healthcare, information and services, for example people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, LGBTQI+, people living with disabilities, deaf people, blind and partially sighted people, people experiencing homelessness, addiction, people living in areas of economic deprivation.

Applicants are invited to apply for up to £5000 to spend in a 12 month period. Funds will be distributed in two tranches, 50% at the beginning of the project and 50% upon receipt of a 6 month report.
