Women’s charities can now bid for the latest £15 million round of the Tampon Tax Fund, Minister for Sport and Civil Society Tracey Crouch announced today.

Projects that aim to reduce drug and alcohol abuse and engage excluded and vulnerable women through sport can also apply for funding.

Tracey Crouch, Minister for Sport and Civil Society said:

The Tampon Tax Fund is already making a real difference to the lives of women and girls across the country. We are ensuring that the money generated from sanitary products continues to support good causes and address the serious issues that women of all ages face.

The deadline for applications closes at midnight on Sunday 28 January 2018 and applications are particularly welcomed from organisations that support women and girls across multiple regions.

All grants from this round of funding may be provided for one or two year projects. All activities must be delivered and funds must be spent by March 2020.
