Women’s Vote Centenary Grants Scheme Opens for Final Round of Large Grant

The Government Equalities Office is making around £500,000 available in the second and final round of the Large Grant Fund.

The Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme is a £1.5 million government fund that will support local and community groups across England in celebrating the centenary of women gaining the right to vote. The scheme has been divided into a Large Grant Fund and a Small Grant Fund.

Under the Large Grant Fund, not-for-profit organisations based and working in England can apply for grants of up to £65,000 to support projects in England that increase the understanding of, and engagement with, democracy, and encourage women to participate in public life.

To be eligible, projects must start by 16 July and finish by 31 December 2018 and meet either or both of the following objectives:

EDUCATE projects must be aimed at young people aged 16-30, particularly young women and those who are particularly disengaged from politics and civic life, which may include young people from lower socio-economic groups, young people who are BAME, LGBT and/or living with disabilities.

PARTICIPATE projects must be aimed at women aged 16 and over. Projects are expected to work with those women who are particularly disengaged from politics and civic life, which may include women from lower socio-economic groups, women who are BAME, LGBT and/or living with disabilities.

Groups can apply for either a grant of between £2,000 and £20,000 or a grant of between £20,001 and £65,000.

The deadline for applications is 17 May 2018
