Community Wellbeing Programme

Do you have an idea for a community wellbeing project or activity in Glossopdale? Perhaps you already run something and want to expand it?

This isn’t a traditional grants scheme! We have a grant pot of £40,000 available over the next 18 months, and we want you, the Voluntary and Community Sector in Glossopdale, to come to us with good ideas that you think meet the priorities and will make a big difference to local people and communities.

The main aim of the Community Wellbeing Programme is to reduce demand and dependency on health and social care services by connecting people to community-based activities and services to help improve their health and wellbeing.

The Community Wellbeing Governance Panel are currently looking for groups and projects that will meet the following priorities:

  • Improve health and wellbeing, particularly for people with long term health conditions
  • Reduce social isolation (lack of contact with people and society)
  • Reduce loneliness (emotional response to isolation – a lack of connection or communication with people)
  • Create mutually beneficial networks of support and resilience (including carers)
  • Support people with low mood, low self-esteem / loss of confidence
  • Support place-based working that improves lives in local communities

If you would like to know more, or think you have a project or idea that would meet this criteria, please come along to our Information session on Wednesday 18th September 2019 from 3pm-5pm at The Bureau.
