We would like to introduce our very own Staying Well Community Fund and the three different types of funding we offer. We are keen to work with community groups, small community associations, organisations, projects and initiatives that work in and around North Halifax to reduce social isolation and loneliness, help individuals and communities to get moving more, and finally, offer support to groups who are financially vulnerable due to the challenges of Covid and want to keep their vital support/service going.
To clarify the areas we work in for North Halifax, these areas are: Ovenden, Mixenden, Illingworth, Warley, Pellon, Shelf and Northowram (and all the in between places too!). We have colleagues across other localities in Calderdale. Should you have an idea in another area we can put you in touch with our colleagues.
All information and further detail of our funds can be found on the Staying Well website: https://stayingwellhub.com/2020/09/26/staying-well-funding-for-community-groups/.
You can contact the team on firstname.lastname@example.org
or ring 01422 392 767 and ask for either Zain or Craig if you have any ideas or just want to talk through any support you are needing.
We look forward to working with you all in 2022!!
This fund is open to application from starting and existing organisations, targeting loneliness and social isolation, particularly delivering services for COVID support.
