Emergency Response Fund - UK women's sector

Coronavirus is a global emergency that has exposed existing inequalities. Women are at the sharp end of the crisis because of the paid work they do, the unpaid roles they fulfil, and their overall economic position. 

Rosa funds and supports small specialist women’s organisations across the UK, most of which operate on a shoestring to provide vital services to women. The economic and social impact of coronavirus is having a significant impact on these organisations’ stretched resources. Many are experiencing a huge influx in demand from women who need their support, but they are also experiencing internal challenges of their own.

While we're delighted that charity umbrella bodies are lobbying to secure emergency funds for charities, we're concerned that these smaller organisations are being overlooked. 

How can you help?

By donating to our Emergency Response Fund you're supporting small, specialist women's organisations across the UK to continue delivering their vital work. Sign up  for news from Rosa and our grantees on how the crisis is affecting the women's sector, and how your money is helping. 

We are seeing a sharp increase in need around:

1) Mobile technology. There's an immediate need for secure and remote technology to enable organisations that normally run helplines and advice services for women from specific offices to do so remotely.

2) Capacity. Women’s organisations are receiving unprecedented numbers of calls from women who are experiencing mental health difficulties, domestic abuse, and challenges around employment and family rights. Organisations need to quickly provide accurate advice and support to women.
 
Rosa is seeing women’s organisations working round the clock to adapt the ways they work and support the women they work with, but they need urgent financial help.
