To coincide with national #TimeToTalk day, Living Well Sefton is launching the fourth round of its Community Resilience Grant.
Community groups and community-minded individuals are being encouraged to apply for funding for projects designed to improve the mental wellbeing of any section of their local communities.
Grants available include up to £2,500 for applications from organisations and £500 to individuals, who are supported by a organisational partner. Grants are subject to specific criteria being met and will be approved by a judging panel. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 3 April .
The Community Resilience Grant has already supported local communities with a range of projects including enhancing wellbeing through gardening or craft workshops, tackling social isolation, providing cooking classes to improve healthy eating and lots more.
Karen Nolan, co-ordinator of Living Well Sefton, explains: “Many people in our communities have benefited through the projects we have already funded. We’d love to discuss your ideas on how to improve wellbeing in your neighbourhood. A small grant can make a big difference!”
Anyone interested in applying can complete the online application form on our website under the Community Resilience Grant section where there are guidance notes on how to complete the form as well as the criteria for applying. Paper versions of the organisation and individual application forms can also be found under the same section on the website.
