Now’s the Time – Part of the Justice and Equality Fund from Rosa UK25-Sep-2018
Rosa, the UK Fund for Women and Girls, is inviting applications from across the UK for the first round of its Justice and Equality Grants Program.
Rosa UK says they want to amplify the voices of all the individuals and groups who are calling for an end to sexual harassment and abuse, in their workplaces and in their communities.
The UK charity are looking to provide help to those organisations who are working to establish solutions that prevents future harassment and abuse, and are calling upon the imaginative and creative direct action that is starting to develop across the UK.
Their intention is to encourage partnerships across sectors, supporting specialist organisations to reach out to colleagues in businesses, unions, local councils, schools and colleges and other contexts, and work with them to drive long-term culture change.
In their Now’s the Time programme Rosa UK are looking to award up to £1 million through a Challenge Fund which asks:
What would you do toward ending sexual harassment?
ROSA is offering grants of between £25,000 to £100,000, for women’s organisations working in partnership with at least one other organisation who address that question, and will welcome applications various project works which includes:
- Prevention work (including education and other initiatives)
- 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
- Innovative uses of tech/arts/sports/etc
- Work that replicates tried and tested approaches in new settings
- Work that others can learn from
The charity is especially interested in hearing from 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.
