The Tampon Tax Fund – administered by County Durham Community Foundation – is open to applications across the North East.

The Tampon Tax Community Fund aims to support women who are most marginalised to overcome barriers that prevent them from fulfilling their potential. The women that will benefit from this initiative will have had little/no access to support or previous investment in their personal or educational development, and/or their social networks.

This programme aims to fund small-scale interventions, which will make a considerable difference to the lives and happiness of women and girls by raising the aspirations of girls and young women and combating the influences that affect their confidence.

These grants will invest in a wide variety of projects, large and small, that aim to make a tangible and long-term difference to health, wellbeing, confidence and social/economic activity as well as addressing equality gaps.


  • Between £5,000 and £10,000
  • For a duration of up to 12 months
  • Across Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and the Tees Valley

Applications will be accepted between 17th September 2018 and midnight on 5th November 2018.
