Final round of Small Grants Funding for Befriending Champions Microgrant now open

6 March 2018

Befriending Champions Microgrants

For projects or activities anywhere in Derbyshire (excluding Derby City) that help people to be less lonely and isolated. Projects might include, for example, setting up or developing a good neighbour initiative, a social group, befriending or other activities that bring adults of any age together to reduce social isolation. Successful applicants will be expected to attend (or have attended) a one-day Befriending Champion training session. This is the final round of Befriending Champions grants and we will priorities funding for projects or activities in Derbyshire Dales, Erewash and Bolsover as those areas have had fewer grants.
Grants of up to £1,000 are available.

Self-help Fund Small Grants

To support the activities of health and wellbeing related self-help groups in South Derbyshire. A self-help group is any group of people who have experience of a particular health-related issue or situation, who meet for mutual support, to reduce isolation, improve the wellbeing of members and/or to devise practical actions to address the issue. For example a carers group or a group for people with a similar health condition, where members meet to support each other, reduce isolation and share experiences.
Grants of up to £500 are available.

You can apply to one or both of our grant funds (depending on what your project is and which of the criteria it meets). However you only need to fill in one application form. The maximum available for any one organisation or project is £1,500. 

To be considered for funding applications must be submitted by 5pm on Thursday 22nd March 2018.

Guidelines and application forms can be found on our Funding Advice page.
