The WEST Fund was established in memory of Ros Wall who was instrumental in setting up a range of local and national projects to encourage women and girls to take up careers in non-traditional roles in Science, Engineering, Technology and the Built Environment.

WEST is a voluntary organisation based in Sheffield and run by a group of trustees who have been involved in this area since the 1980s.

Every year WEST makes small bursaries to offer practical support to women and girls who are learning or working in a non-traditional role or would like to do start to do this. For the last three years the bursary money has been raised through an annual film night.

In 2013 WEST received funds to develop outreach work. It is now working with three partners and other organisations to encourage girls and women in Sheffield to get involved in subjects and careers that they might not usually consider.
