The Smallwood Trust has awarded £1.75 million in new grants across England through Round 1 of the Women’s Urgent Support Fund. The Fund is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest community funder in the UK, to respond to the cost-of-living crisis.
Thanks to National Lottery players, 23 organisations will receive funding over three years that will safeguard frontline staff salaries, provide essential items for women at most risk of poverty and cover increased running costs. To meet high demand on the Fund, an additional 8 organisations were awarded a grant through Smallwood’s own funds.
Rochdale Women’s Welfare Association are proud to announce that we are recipients of an award, spanning three years, that will enable us to support more women by securing staff salaries.
