The Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme is a £1.5 million government fund that will support local and community groups across England in celebrating the centenary of women gaining the right to vote. 

2018 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, which first gave women the right to vote. The act gave some women and all men the right to vote in local and national elections.

The grant scheme has two types of funds:

  •  Approximately 150 Small Grants of between £300 and £2,000 for grassroots projects to run small-scale events and activities  to celebrate the centenary of women gaining the vote
  • Up to 30 Large Grants of between £2,000 and £125,000. These will fund projects that increase the understanding of, and engagement with, democracy and encourage women to participate in public life

Both fund are open to organisations and activity in England only.
