Welsh women and girls projects share in national Tampon Tax Community Funding

Welsh women and girls projects share in national Tampon Tax Community Funding

Five local projects working with some of society’s most vulnerable women and girls have received a much-needed funding boost from Community Foundation in Wales.

These small charities and community groups have received between £5,000 - £10,000 from the Tampon Tax Community Fund to provide services for women of all ages and backgrounds facing issues such as period poverty, domestic and sexual abuse, mental health and long-term unemployment to help build their skills, confidence and self-esteem.

Projects in Wales receiving funding will help women and girls from a broad range of age groups, ethnicities and backgrounds access well-being activities, receive support such as counselling and advocacy, build social networks, develop digital skills and attend confidence building courses.

Richard Williams, Chief Executive of Community Foundation in Wales said:

This fund provides vital financial assistance to important community projects that aim to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls. Community Foundation in Wales is proud to be distributing the Tampon Tax Community Fund and offer continued support and assistance to vulnerable women and girls across Wales. “

Community Foundation in Wales has awarded five grants to the following projects:

As one of the UK’s largest grant-giving organisations, UK Community Foundation (UKCF) was asked by government to distribute the largest share of the funding raised through the levy on sanitary products in 2017/18 to small, local projects, working with its network of Community Foundations across the UK of which Community Foundation in Wales is a part of.

UKCF Director of Programmes and Development Vicki Papworth said:

“Community Foundations work with grassroots groups who are running vital services on a shoestring and supporting some of the most marginalised people in our society. This funding will enable them to run some amazing projects that make a difference on the ground to the women and girls who need it most.”
