Women's Fund for Scotland


The Women’s Fund makes grants to projects across Scotland that support women’s development, self-sufficiency and social and economic equality.

Established in 2002, the Fund has distributed almost £2m in grants to over 700 community groups and local charities run by or for women.


To support projects across Scotland that promote women’s development, self-sufficiency, and social and economic equality. Our vision is of a Scotland that is safe, healthy, prosperous and connected because women and girls have been encouraged and supported to reach their full potential. All members of the community will benefit from the empowerment the Fund brings to women.

Making A Difference

The Women’s Fund for Scotland makes grants across four key themes

  • building skills and confidence

  • improving health and well-being

  • building social networks

  • moving on from violence

There is no organisational income cap for applicants, however applications from organisations with an income below £250,000 may be prioritised over larger organisations.



You can apply for between £500 and £5,000. Grants must be spent within one year and the total project cost must not exceed £20,000. There is around £100,000 to be awarded in total between both rounds.



The fund is currently closed.  Please check this page for updates.
