Community Grant Fund

Community funding is available to help provide facilities, equipment and projects that are important to the local community. Projects that meet the local priorities discussed at Area board meetings will be a priority for funding. Funding for 50% of  the total cost up to £5000.

Youth Grant Fund

The area boards are committed to providing revenue grant funding for those wishing to provide postive activities for 13-19 year olds and those aged up to 25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Projects delivered in the past include arts, music, sports, leisure and other after school activities where young people can make friends in a fun and safe environment.

Health and Wellbeing Fund

 

Health and Wellbeing Groups (HWG) have been allocated a sum of revenue funding from the adult community care budget to fund grants, projects and initiatives for adults within a particular community area. HWGs are able to and indeed are encouraged to secure additional funding through applying for additional grants. These guidelines are only applicable to monies devolved to HWGs for the community care budget.

The money must be used to invest in projects that will support adults living within a community area. While not exclusively restricted to older people, HWG investment should be made in such a way as to make the maximum impact on health and wellbeing within a given community area. Older adults (those aged 65) are most likely to require high cost health and care services and as such investment in projects that will benefit this demographic are very likely to have the most significant impact.
