We thank the Tampon Tax Fund for funding our onward grant activity.

Margin to Centre recognises the impact of structural inequalities in the funding sector that disproportionately impacts Black and minoritised women and girls’ organisations.

Margin to Centre is designed to build sustainability within the sector and re-dress unequal power and transactional dynamics by creating equality within funding systems and cultures.

Margin to Centre elevates the transformative social justice approach through awareness of the resourcing needs of Black ad minoritised women and girls.

Margin to Centre does not require Black and minoritised women and girls to evidence the case for their existence. Margin to Centre recognises that they exist.

If you are a specialist organisation fitting the following criteria you will be eligible to apply:

  • You are a Black and minoritised women and girls’ organisation.
  • You deliver frontline work addressing VAWG.
  • Able to spend funding is allocated by 31 March 2023.
  • Framework 4 covers organisations operating in England and Scotland only.

We use the term from Hooks, B. 2012. Feminist Theory from Margin to Centre to name Imkaan onward grant activities. The term and theory recognise the necessity of movement for Black and minoritised women and girls subjected to the ‘margins’ due to structural inequality and racism.
