NCF wins share of Tampon Tax Fund to support disadvantaged women and girls

Following a national competitive tender process, Norfolk Community Foundation is one of seventy organisations across the country to share £12 million from the Tampon Tax Fund.

The Fund, which comes from the Government’s tax on sanitary products, is aimed at helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls across the country.

Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson announced the full list of funding for charities from the latest round of the Tampon Tax Fund designed to benefit charities that support women and girls, particularly those affected by violence and domestic abuse.

With £40,000 allocated to Norfolk to be awarded as part of a two year grants programme, local charities and community groups will be invited to apply for grants of up to £2,000 to focus on improving the lives of disadvantaged women and girls. 

Applicant organisations would not have to be only working with women and girls but the funded projects should be specifically for women or girls.
