The Tampon Tax Community Fund supports women and girls of all ages across the UK to build their skills, confidence and self-esteem.
Charities and community groups can apply for grants of up to £10,000 to run projects and services directly benefiting women and girls facing issues such as period poverty, domestic and sexual abuse, mental health and long-term unemployment.
The programme seeks to reduce the risk of crisis at different life stages. This may be by helping women and girls get into or back work, raising awareness about health issues, or by creating and developing peer networks.
Priority will be given to grassroots organisations, organisations working with women or girls facing multiple challenges, user-led organisations and sustainable projects providing long-term solutions.
The Tampon Tax Community Fund is a national fund, managed by local community foundations.
