Lib Dem Women Fund

Standing for election can be expensive, not only taking up time but often imposing hidden costs throughout the campaign. That’s why we’ve set up the Lib Dem Women Fund, to provide micro-grants and help cover personal expenditure that my be incurred as you stand for office.

How it works

The grant is designed to cover one-off personal expenditures, this could include:

  • A pre-paid burner phone
  • Suitable clothes for canvassing 
  • Photography 
  • Funding to attend ALDC’s kickstart weekend


The list above isn’t exhaustive and we will consider applications for items which help with complex challenges around disabilities, caring, etc  
Any member of Lib Dem Women standing for election or selection is eligible. 
To apply for a micro-grant, all you have to do is email women@libdems.org.uk telling us a bit about yourself, what the grant would be used for and how it would make a difference to your candidacy.

Applications will be considered confidentially by a panel made up of Lib Dem Women executive members, on a case-by-case basis. There is no hard deadline to apply.
