The Council & democracy International Women's Day 2018: grants for voluntary and community groups

2018 marks the centenary of the Representation of the People Act of 1918, which saw a change in law that allowed some women the vote for the first time, and there’ll be a host of activities around International Women’s Day to mark that anniversary.

Grant applications

The closing date for International Women’s Day grant applications has now passed. We’ve received lots of applications from across the city and will review them over the coming weeks; we’ll confirm which groups are getting their grants very early in the New Year.

What’s on

The range of activities, events and projects will be listed online as soon as details are confirmed; we look forward to celebrating International Women’s Day with you in March.
