TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Grants of up to £10,000 available for groups helping to deliver Connected Lives for adults in Hertfordshire

Deadline 2nd January 2020

The Community Grants programme is being funded by Hertfordshire County Council’s Community Wellbeing team and managed by Hertfordshire Community Foundation.
The HCC Community Wellbeing Team wants to work closely with the voluntary sector to improve the quality of life for adults in Hertfordshire. These grants are designed to fund charitable projects and organisations which focus on the Connected Lives approach to help develop the resilience and capacity of our communities and to reduce demand on statutory services. This will be a strong tool in combating loneliness. Connecting people with what is important to them will allow them to stay independent and prevent or reduce reliance on formal care services. The team wants to ensure a joined up support and care network for those who need health and adult social care including older people, those with disabilities and those with mental health issues.

Projects must be focused on prevention, have clearly defined and demonstrable outcomes and be able to show how they could reduce demand on statutory services. We particularly welcome applications which contribute to the achievement of the broad objectives of the Year of Culture in Hertfordshire. This would include projects which increase wellbeing, reduce social isolation and create a sense of belonging.
