The On An Equal Footing project was designed to support women and women-led organisations within the community sector to access social investment opportunities across the East Midlands. The project was funded by the Connect Fund, and was delivered by Lincolnshire Community Foundation and Sortified.
The project aimed to more women-led organisations in the East Midlands to access social investment, to be more financially stable, and for more women to feel empowered to deliver their social objectives. It also sought to identify existing barriers and issues for women seeking to access social investment.
In the Final Report from the project you can find more details about how the project was delivered, the themes identified around barriers and issues for women seeking to access social investment and recommended actions in order to create a better environment for women accessing social investment in the future.
