Wellbeing grants to boost local groups

Community and faith groups in Sefton are being encouraged to apply for the latest round of grants being offered by local wellbeing organisation Living Well Sefton.

This is the eighth round of the popular Community Resilience Grant with the focus on supporting small groups to recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Grants of up to £2,000 are available for projects aiming to help their communities boost their mental wellbeing.

“The idea is to give a hand to those smaller community groups who may be struggling to get started again. Our grants can support with the additional costs of running activities in the recovery phase, such as having smaller group sizes,” explained Deputy Programme Manager, Anne-Marie Morrison.

She added: “Easing out of lockdown is opening up opportunities again for communities to reconnect and we hope our grants can go towards providing more of these opportunities as safely as possible as a way of reducing people’s sense of being on their own.”

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

The deadline for receiving applications is Wednesday, September 30.

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

Alternatively, email the team on LWS@seftoncvs.org.uk or ring them on 0300 323 0181 with any queries.
