The Changemakers programme gave seven small grants of between £8,000 and £15,000 to organisations with new projects offering creative, cultural, sporting or volunteering opportunities for women. The projects helped women build their body confidence, challenge their objectification, and address the expectation that they will fulfil gendered – and undervalued – caring roles.

Successful applicants Amina MWRC, Blueprint 22, Disability Wales, Fearless Futures, Leap Confronting Conflict, Stills Gallery Edinburgh, and The Runnymede Trust received grants of £8,000 to £15,000 to work in communities across the UK.


We were delighted with the quality and diversity of the applications we received, which demonstrated the ambition in the voluntary sector to tackle the harmful norms and stereotypes that underlie gender inequality in our society. We are delighted to be working alongside these great organisations to drive real change across the country.
