The financial inclusion project aims to improve the financial situation of women who have been affected by domestic violence. A major part of the project that we are looking into is the development of a pot of money which women can access quickly when in desperate need for immediate financial help.

Location

Situation

A large number of women affected by domestic violence find themselves in an extremely vulnerable position financial. This may be because their abuser has restricted their access to funds, or they simply have to flee their home quickly with minimal affects. Applications for funding from the state and other charitable trusts can be a lengthy process which may only exacerbate the problem.

Solution

The emergency fund will help victims and survivors of domestic violence get back on their feet quickly, and make it easier for these women to set up on their own after seeking refuge. Applications to the emergency fund will be considered quickly, and will assist many different women affected in a wide variety of ways.
