Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, has opened a £1.5 million Women’s Suffrage Centenary Grant Scheme for bids from voluntary or community organisations of up to £125,000 for projects running throughout the centenary year, to encourage communities to celebrate and help make modern politics more accessible.
Over £1 million of the Centenary Grant Scheme will be available for at least 30 large scale schemes to increase young people’s engagement with democracy and to encourage more women to take part in public life. The rest of the fund will be made up of smaller grants of up to £2000 for local events to celebrate and remember those who campaigned for change.
Round 1 of the Large Grant Fund for grants between £30,000 and £125,000 is open for online applications.
The closing date is 27th February 2018.
The next round of small grants will open on 15th March 2018.
