Voices From The Frontline 

Voices From The Frontline supports women’s organisations to shine a light on their fight for gender equality in the UK. The fourth round of the grants programme deadline is Tuesday 14th May.

Throughout history, every single advance for women’s rights and gender equality – including property ownership, access to education, equal pay and reproductive rights – has only ever been achieved by bold, brave women becoming informed, getting organised, mobilising others and taking action to tackle injustice and inequality head-on. They want to fund this work!

This programme offers grants of £500 to £5,000 to support charitable campaigning work across Rosa’s four pillars (leadership and representation, safety, health and economic justice). We’re looking for new voices to stand up and take action.

“Supporting the community is not about dictating what we think the community needs, it is about supporting the needs of the community. Therefore, we do not have set criteria for the types of projects we will support”. (see guidance for any exclusions).

How much you are applying for is not the prime concern: what you will do with the money and how Atul Pathak and Appt Corporation is able to support you throughout the year is what we are interested in.

Projects relating to environment, sport, health, welfare and education have been supported.

Annual grants of £500-£3000 are available. In addition to Atul Pathak Community Awards, Appt Corporation will provide corporate assistance where possible. This can include:
• Contributions from associated organisations in fields ranging from accounting, to assistance with promotion and back-office functions.
