Emergency Fund applications and criteria

To help get money to the young women most in need, we are working with three charity partners.

These partners will identify young women who can benefit and refer them to the Emergency Fund.

Young women are not able to refer themselves directly to the fund. 

Our Emergency Fund partners 

  • Women's Aid 
  • Women’s Resource Centre
  • Women for Refugee Women

We are not looking for any more partners to refer young women to the fund. 

Emergency Fund criteria

Our partners make sure the fund supports young women who: 

  • Have high levels of debt
  • Have lost income as a result of coronavirus
  • Use food banks
  • Are financially dependent on someone who has lost income as a result of coronavirus
  • Do a large amount of unpaid work
  • Receive state benefit
