Now’s the Time programme will award up to £1 million through a Challenge Fund which asks: “What would you do toward ending sexual harassment?”

Large grants of between £25,000 and £100,000 for over one to three years are being made available to women's organisations applying in partnership with at least one other organisation.

The outcomes being working towards through the Now’s the Time programme include:

The Fund is looking for ideas, solutions, the best next steps to support the following:

  • Prevention work (including education and other initiatives)
  • Awareness-raising activities

  • Work that tries out new ideas
  • Innovative uses of tech/arts/sports/etc
  • Work that replicates tried and tested approaches in new settings
  • Work that others can learn from

The funding is to be used for mainly revenue costs or for new work or an extension or continuation, of existing work.
