Rosa’s Voices from the Front Line fund now open

The programme offers grants between £500-£2,000 to support charitable advocacy work across Rosa’s four pillars: leadership and representation, safety, health and economic justice.

Rosa’s Voices from the Front Line programme supports women’s organisations to shine a light on their fight for gender equality in the UK, by resourcing advocacy and activists with lived experience of disadvantage.

Rosa has already compiled compelling evidence of the need for change to move closer to social justice and equality for women in the UK and we are looking for new voices with direct experience to stand up and take action.

Through the first round of the Voices from the Front Line programme, Rosa has helped 24 grassroots women’s organisations across the UK bring gender equality for all women a small step closer. Take a look at some of the organisations supported through this programme in the video below.

The programme aims to:

  • Support advocacy and influencing work across any one of Rosa’s four pillars
  • Amplify the voices of individual women at the front line of grassroots work in the UK
  • Support work which can, long-term, tackle the underlying causes of a problem and create change
  • Nurture talent. Advocacy driven by inspiring, committed leaders can achieve remarkable results

What sort of work will be supported?

The money can be used to pay for increasing the skills, capacity, credibility and effectiveness of women who wish to challenge gender inequality and promote awareness and change. Creative approaches are encouraged, examples of the work we will support include:

  • Coaching or travel costs for a service user to speak at an event or national conference
  • Presentation, media or lobbying training to support organisational advocacy strategies.
  • Costs of creating campaign materials, such as posters, infographics or videos
  • Articulating the story of one woman to champion an organisation’s work
  • Making a case to local commissioners for the value of your service
  • Meeting costs with local/national government representatives or for planning a campaign

The deadline for applications is Thursday 15th June at 5pm
