Grants to encourage people to enjoy the great outdoors

Community groups in Sefton are being invited to apply for a ‘Get Outside’ grant being offered by wellbeing organisation, Living Well Sefton.

This is the seventh round of the popular Community Resilience Grant and groups can apply for grants up to £2,000 for projects that focus on initiatives and activities which aim to encourage people to be more physically active outside such as joining in community gardens, forest schools and walking groups.

The last grant focused on bringing people together over healthy food. Bootle-based charity YKids received one of these grants and was able to offer Family Time which saw children learning life skills as they cooked food with help from their parents, ending with everyone sitting down to enjoy the meal.

Galloway’s Society for the Blind in Southport received a previous grant and ran tailored ‘Get Active with Art’ classes for visually-impaired people, One person who attended the sessions said: “Coming to do the crafts gives me something to get up for and I have made new friends.”

Individuals, with help from a Living Well partner, can apply for a £500 grant.

Anyone wanting to apply can download an application form off the Community Resilience Grant page on this website.

Or you can ring the team on 0300 323 0181 with any queries.
