FUNDRAISING NEWS: Women's groups to benefit from review of London grants

Women's groups across the capital are set to receive a boost in funding following a review of the Association of London Government's grant distribution.

A further £90,000 will be shared out among voluntary organisations working on issues including rape, violence against women, counselling services, helplines and employment.

This brings the total amount of money allocated for women's groups by the Association of London Government up to £2.8 million. Organisations set to benefit include the Asian Deaf Women's Association and the African Women's Welfare Association.

The grants follow the first review of how the borough's funding is distributed since the scheme was set up in 1985. The association has been working on the reassessment since the beginning of 2000.

"A total review of the way the grants were distributed was long overdue," said Raj Chandarana, chair of the grants committee.

Organisations had to show that their scheme would help address other issues such as reducing poverty and social exclusion.

The association distributes more than £27 million of grant funding a year.
