Fund Her Candidate Grants

Fund Her Candidate Grants

Let Elect Her be your champion as you step forward to represent your community. If you’re from an underrepresented background or experience and are contesting an election in 2024, apply for a Fund Her grant to support you with the personal costs of standing.

The challenges facing leaders and policy-makers have never seemed bigger. We urgently need a new generation of women who represent the lived experience of people in the communities they represent, and are capable of building dynamic and positive solutions for the future. But until financial barriers are removed, standing for election remains a dream that is out of reach for many women.

That's why we work across the political spectrum to fund, train and lift up the voices of underrepresented women as they stand for election.

Our mission is to support a new generation of women into elected office. Working class women, Disabled women and Women of Colour, all of whom have plenty of skills and life experience to draw on, are too often ignored and unheard in political spaces.

Fund Her 2024 Candidate Grants

We offer grants of £500 which go to women directly to cover personal expenses necessary to engage in the democratic process.

Last year we gave out grants to 22 candidates. Grants were typically spent on:

  • Childcare

  • Transport

  • Food

  • Heating or other bills

  • Mobility aids


    To be eligible to apply for a grant you must be:

  • A woman preparing to be a candidate in an election in 2024, or the upcoming general election

  • Experiencing financial barriers, and/or struggling with personal expenses

  • Actively seeking to address the needs of your community

  • Clear on how being elected would aid you to better address the needs of your community or make the positive change you want to see
