New Grant Programme: Supporting Vulnerable Women and Families in the International Protection Process

Posted on 16 Feb 2023

In 2023, SSGT launched a new funding programme aimed at supporting the most vulnerable women and families in the IP process including: lone parents, families with children who have additional needs, women and children who have survived abuse, victims of sex trafficking and families with deportation orders who do not have access to adequate financial or social supports.

The programme includes two funding strands and supports work in Ireland and in Northern Ireland. In Strand 1, one-year grants of between €5,000 (£4,500) and €8,000 (£7,500) will be offered to local groups working to improve the living conditions and pathways to support for the target beneficiaries. Strand 2 will welcome applications for up to €20,000 (£17,500) per annum for up to three years from groups working strategically to improve the situation of vulnerable women and families in the long-term. 

Detailed criteria and a link to the online application forms can be found here for Strand 1 and here for Strand 2.

If you have any queries about the programme, please contact our Grants and Development Manager Sara at

The deadline for applications is 16 March 2023 at 17:00.
