Young Women's Trust | The Big Give

Posted on March 2022

Our partnership with Young Women’s Trust dates back nearly 7 years. In this time we have supported them with their CV writing service, fundraising efforts, and recently by providing employability skills to their patrons.

Building on this relationship that has continued to grow in strength, we were delighted to support Young Women’s Trust in accessing the Big Give match funding from the Tampon Tax Fund. This fund was established to return money generated by VAT on sanitary products to causes which support women, and Young Women’s Trust were pivotal in advocating for this initiative.

When Young Women’s Trust received confirmation they were eligible for the Women & Girls Match Fund, we worked with them to carry over our 2021 fundraising amount so its impact could be doubled. In combination with a charity day held on International Women’s Day, our total fundraising resulted in the matched funds reaching £28,376.

“We are delighted to have such a long-term and productive partnership with Venn Group. As our longest-standing partner, Venn Group have had an enormous impact on young women’s lives over the past seven years. Their fundraising this year, coupled with match funding from the Big Give, is coming at a vital time as young women continue to feel the negative financial impact of the pandemic, now made worse by rising cost of living. Thank you to Venn Group for your team’s dedication to supporting young women. We look forward to supporting many more young women together in the years ahead.” – Claire Reindorp, CEO, Young Women’s Trust

We are excited to see what Young Women’s Trust achieve with their funding, as our employability initiatives have given us first-hand experience of the life-changing impact their work provides.
