As announced on 30th March 2017, 70 organisations were selected to be put forward to share £12 million worth of investment from the Tampon Tax Fund. All applications into the fund were assessed against three criteria: evidence for the need of the project; the organisation’s ability to deliver; and the sustainability and impact of the project. A list of the 70 organisations has been published on the Government website: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/charities-across-the-uk-benefit-from-tampon-tax-fund
