Women’s Budget Group

WBG have been awarded a grant from the Irene Bruegel Fund, by the Lipman-Miliband Trust.

Irene Bruegel (1945–2008) was a socialist feminist researcher and activist involved in many campaigns to right injustices and empower the most vulnerable in society. The Fund, set up in her memory, provides funding for projects that make a substantial contribution to combating inequalities.
WBG have been awarded a grant to produce a series of briefing papers in the run-up to the 2015 general election outlining our vision for creating an equitable and caring economy.

We are extremely grateful to the Lipman-Miliband Trust for this generous grant.
