Funding to end sexual harassment
In the Now’s the Time programme Rosa will award up to £1 million through a Challenge Fund which asks: “What would you do toward ending sexual harassment?”
The work they want to fund includes prevention work (including education and other initiatives), grass-roots activism, work with groups and communities who might face additional barriers to getting their voices heard, or might be at higher risk of sexual harassment and abuse, to amplify those voices, new and tried-and-tested ideas and innovative uses of tech/arts/sports/etc
They are particularly keen to see cross-sector partnerships where the expertise of specialist voluntary sector organisations at the forefront of this work is shared with others, to help drive broader change.
Women’s organisations applying for £5,000 – £25,000 can apply by themselves, or in a partnership.
Women’s organisations applying for £25,000 – £100,000 will need to apply in partnership with at least one other organisation.
