Futures For Women
Who we are
Futures for Women is a small, national charity that opens paths for aspiring women of all ages.
Our charity was first established in 1859 by Jessie Boucherett, a leading player in the suffragist movement. Jessie devoted her life and considerable wealth to helping women train for professions which were previously unavailable to them.
Jessie's legacy flourished after her death and her charity's work continues to this day. During 2019 and 2020 we supported the Sharan Project to run 4 employability programmes for women from the south Asian community of Birmingham who were at risk of domestic abuse or cultural conflict. On International Women's Day 2021 we announced that we would be offering up to 20 grants of £500 each to female further education students at Grimsby Institute who were in need of funding to cover course fees or general hardship. On the same day we also re-opened our interest-free loan programme for women studying post-graduate degrees or professional training courses leading to their desired career.
