With support from Comic Relief, Rosa anticipates making between eight and 10 grants of between £500 and £5,000 to voluntary and community organisations across the UK.Grants can be used towards training, research, mentoring, networking, and the delivery of advice, awareness-raising, and support. They are designed to help organisations improve their skills in engaging with and lobbying statutory bodies; become more confident and skilled in tackling FGM within their communities; and to contribute to a unified movement across the UK that brings together a range of organisations that are all tackling FGM.For the final round, Rosa states that it will only accept applications from organisations that:• engage with and provide support to newly arrived communities;• have received a previous Rosa’s FGM Small Grant, in order to to continue their work beyond the life of the programme and to become sustainable.Guidance notes on applying for the FGM Small Grants programme are available, and applications close at 5pm on 14 September 2015.
