Foundation Scotland - Women's Fund for Scotland
The purpose of the Tampon Tax Fund is to allocate the funds generated from the VAT on sanitary products to projects that improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls. It aims to support women who are most marginalised to overcome barriers that prevent them from fulfilling their potential. The programme will benefit women and girls, investing in a wide variety of projects, that make a tangible and long-term difference to health, wellbeing, confidence and social/economic activity, as well as addressing equality gaps. Priority is given to grassroots organisations offering localised support.
