Futures for Women is a registered charity (No. 313700) formerly known as the Society for Promoting the Training of Women.
Our charity was established in 1859 by suffragist Jessie Boucherett to encourage women towards economic independence through employment and this objective still underpins our activities today. Please visit our History page to find out how our charity has developed over the past 160 years.
Interest-free loan programme
Interest-free loans of up to £1000 are available to women studying a post-graduate degree or a professional training course which will lead to their desired career. This programme is currently closed but we plan to open the application window again in September 2024.
To achieve our aims of supporting women into work we also undertake partnership projects with other charities. Please visit this page to read about our partnership working during 2019 to 2021. We regularly review which charities we work with, so please contact our Administrator if you represent a charity with similar aims to ours.
