Round 10

Living Well Sefton’s Community Resilience Grant fund round 10 is now accepting applications. The theme of this round is Community Resourcefulness.

Sefton-based voluntary, community and faith (VCF) sector groups are invited to apply for up to £2,000 to support local community health and wellbeing projects and activities that aim to tackle community resourcefulness within the borough.

Projects do not necessarily have to be new for this round but we are looking to fund projects aiming to support community resourcefulness.

Previous grant recipients are encouraged to reapply as well as first time applicants and those that have previously been unsuccessful.

Apply as an individual

Individuals are encouraged to apply all year round. The fund is designed to provide small grants to individuals working in Sefton; and is targeted at actively engaging local people in improving their health and wellbeing.

Projects do not necessarily have to be new for this round but we are particularly looking to fund projects aiming to improve people’s mental health, and/or increase their physical activity and/or manage weight.

The maximum grant available to individuals is £500

Workplace Wellbeing Grants

Living Well Sefton, in partnership with Sefton Public Health, also offers ‘Small to Medium Enterprises’ (SMEs) grants of up to £500 to improve the wellbeing of employees.

Looking after the wellbeing of your employees will make you a stronger organisation with a happier, healthier workforce, especially as people return to work after the lifting of lockdown measures. It also shows that you care about the people who work for you. Improving workplace wellbeing can also contribute to reduced absenteeism, increased productivity, and support staff to improve their lifestyles.
