Arun District Council Wellbeing Grants

news release
3 March 2015

Could your group benefit from a Wellbeing grant of up to £500

Grants of up to £500 are available for voluntary, community and charity groups in the Arun district.

The Arun Wellbeing Health and Partnership Small Grants scheme has an easy one-stage application process.

Applications are invited from not-for-profit organisations for activities that promote or support wellbeing and health.

To be eligible for funding, groups and organisations must demonstrate that their activities either promote or support one or more of the Arun Wellbeing and Health Partnership priorities.

These include prevention of ill-health, information, improving mental wellbeing, tackling health inequalities, providing services for older people to enable better quality of life, and working with families, young people and children on a range of lifestyle issues.

Councillor Paul Wotherspoon, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, said; ” I would recommend taking advantage of these grants as they help support voluntary, charity and community groups and the vital work they provide to residents.”

Groups who benefitted from a grant last year include Age UK West Sussex, Angmering Voices Community Choir, Arun Dolphins Swimming Club, Arun Access Group, Littlehampton Organisation of Community Arts, Bersted Green Tea and Chat, Rainbow Friends, Home Start Arun, St Wilfrids Primary School and Coastal West Sussex Mind.

The next deadline for submissions is Friday 3 April 2015 and applications will be considered by the Appraisal Panel during the first week in May.

For more information about the Arun Wellbeing and Health Partnership Joint Small Grants scheme, details on the priority areas and how to apply, contact Claire Dower on 01903 737862 or Joy Bradbury-Ball on 01903 737855 or email Claire at claire.dower@arun.gov.uk
