Voices from the Front Line - Rosa Fund grants programme

Rosa is pleased to open the third round of our flagship grants programme, Voices from the Frontline.

Voices from the Frontline supports women’s organisations to shine a light on their fight for gender equality in the UK. It resources advocacy, campaigning and activists with lived experience of injustice and inequality – giving voice especially to women facing intersecting disadvantages including race, class, sexuality, disability, poverty or migration status.

Take a look at some of the organisations who were supported through the last round of this programme below:



The programme offers grants of £500-£3,000 to support charitable campaigning work across Rosa’s four pillars (leadership and representation, safety, health and economic justice). Based on the evidence of inequality, and our analysis of what change could look like, we’re looking for new voices to stand up and take action.

Together we can make change happen faster.

The programme aims to:

  • Support campaigning, advocacy and activists working across any one of Rosa’s four pillars
  • Amplify the voices of individual women at the Frontline of grassroots work in the UK
  • Support work which can, long-term, tackle the underlying causes of a problem women face.
  • Nurture talent. Activism driven by inspiring, committed leaders can achieve remarkable results

The first two rounds of Voices from the Frontline have supported organisations and campaigns like Basis Sex Work who were awarded £2,000 to work with sex workers in Leeds, challenge stigmas the women face and help improve their wellbeing through the production of a booklet of poetry and art. And Women in Sport, who were granted £2,000 to use ‘Women's Sport Week’ to launch a campaign about the visibility of sporting role models for women. This campaign reached over 10.5 million people and led to Women in Sport securing larger funding from Comic Relief.

To date, Voices from the Front Line has supported 44 grassroots and national women’s organisations across the UK, tackling issues that have a wider impact on women beyond the direct recipients of grants. 

Voices from the Frontline will open for applications on Wednesday 11 April 2018 and will close at 5pm on Tuesday 29 May 2018. Our simple video application process only takes a few minutes to complete.
