The Women’s Fund provides grants to projects across Scotland that support women’s development, self-sufficiency and social and economic equality. The fund was established in 2002 and has distributed £1.4m million in grants to over 550 community groups and local charities run by or for women.
The fund’s vision is of a Scotland that is safe, healthy, prosperous and connected because women and girls have been encouraged and supported to reach their full potential.
WFS believe that “women are stronger together” and provides grassroots funding to projects run by and for women, either as start-up funds or to help pilot new initiatives. Often the Fund is the sole supporter of these groups and/or provides seed funding enabling the group to approach other funders.
