Comic Relief: Tackling violence against women and girls





With funds raised through the Tampon Tax, this initiative will be fully focused on work that supports women and girls at risk of violence who have multiple and complex needs.

Grants of between £60,000 and £120,000 (over one to three years) are available for core or project running costs.

The fund aims to:

  • Enable organisations to better support women within the target group
  • Showcase how women’s lived experience can inform the design and delivery of services, practice and policy
  • Provide opportunities for projects to try out new ways and models of working, for example by acting earlier, building community assets or using digital approaches
  • Enable cross sector partnerships to work together to provide high quality support
  • Support approaches that can provide learning for other organisations and stakeholders across the sector
  • Improve access to support for women with complex needs in less well-served communities, such as BAMER, older women, LBTI, disabled women

Applications are welcomed for a broad range of work that demonstrates an understanding of the gendered causes of violence against women, and that tackles causes and consequences. This may be through preventative and early action measures, crisis intervention, research and policy work as well as longer-term support.

Grant size: £60,000 to £120,000

Deadline: 2 July 2018
