Futures for Women is the new name for the Society for Promoting the Training of Women (Registered Charity No: 313700).  Please note that we no longer award interest-free loans for further education and training.

On International Women’s Day 2019 the Trustees of Futures for Women announced that they will be funding the charity The Sharan Project as their first project partner.    The Sharan Project is a national charity that supports vulnerable women, particularly from South Asian communities in Britain, who have experienced persecution, domestic violence, forced marriage, honour based abuse and other forms of cultural conflict. The Sharan Project provides them with the tools to lead an independent life without fear and realise their full potential.   Over the next 2 years Futures for Women will part-fund a Sharan Project programme which will seek to create realistic employment opportunities for 2 groups of 20 women, based in Birmingham.
