Futures For Women
Futures for Women is a small, national charity that opens paths for aspiring women of all ages and from all walks of life to rewarding careers and economic independence, through financial support for their professional and vocational training at times of need. Most of our interest-free loans, usually of £1000 each, will be for post-graduate degrees, and the diplomas and certificates required for professional or vocational qualifications. The loans are repaid at reasonable rates once the woman is in paid employment, so that the money can be re-cycled and used to support other women. 29% of our beneficiaries repay their loan in one instalment and the average repayment period is 15 months.
Our charity was first established in 1859 by Jessie Boucherett, a leading player in the suffragette movement. Jessie devoted her life and considerable wealth to helping women train for professions which were previously unavailable to them.
