Grants up to £1000 are available for voluntary, community and charity groups who operate in the Arun district, which covers Arundel, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton and many of the surrounding villages. Applications are invited from not-for-profit organisations for activities that promote or support wellbeing and health.
The Arun Wellbeing and Health Partnership Small Grants scheme has an easy one stage application process. The next deadline for submissions is Monday 25 June 2018 and applications will be considered by the Appraisal Panel during the middle to end of July 2018.
To be eligible for funding, groups and organisations must demonstrate that their activities support one or both of the Arun Wellbeing and Health Partnership priorities, which are to Promote Physical Activity and Prevent Social Isolation. Further information and guidance notes can be provided by Arun Wellbeing.
Councillor Mike Clayden, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing, said: “These grants help to support the valuable work that community groups provide for ours residents. Promoting more active lifestyles and helping individuals to improve their social networks are key objectives to improve wellbeing and health in the district.”
Groups who benefitted from a grant last year include 4SIGHT, Blue Print 22, Bognor Community Action Network, Frame of Mind, Health Champions and Safe in Sussex.
