The Smallwood Trust has been helping women on low incomes since 1886, more than 130 years. Her Majesty The Queen has been our patron since 1953.

Our mission is to enable women to become financially resilient by equipping them with the skills they need to secure a confident financial future. We provide grants to organisations and individuals and work with selected partners to help women overcome financial adversity and to improve their social and emotional well-being.

The Smallwood Trust was formally known as The Society for the Assistance of Ladies in Reduced Circumstances. To find out more, read our history.
