The third and final round of the Small Grant Fund is now open for applications. The Government Equalities Office established the £1.5 million Women’s Vote Centenary Grant scheme earlier this year to mark the centenary of women gaining the right to vote in England. The Fund has been divided into a large grant scheme, which is now closed, and a small grant scheme, the third and final round of which is now open for applications.
The Small Grant scheme is aimed at local groups and organisations to hold activities that mark the centenary in their community. Applications will be considered from parish and town councils, voluntary or community organisations, not-for-profits including social enterprises, community interest companies, schools, colleges, and universities.
Grants of between £300 and £2,000 are available for activities that start by 15 December 2018 and are completed by 31 December 2018.
All projects must meet the overall CELEBRATE objective of the Small Grant Fund:
CELEBRATE, INSPIRE and REMEMBER: to increase national awareness and mark 100 years since women got the right to vote.
The funding is for activities which:
- Celebrate key centenary milestones.
- Increase people’s awareness of the women’s suffrage movement.
- Improve people's understanding of democracy in the UK, particularly young people.
- Encourage and inspire participation in civic life.
Deadline: 16 October 2018 (23:59)
