Group looks for ideas to ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity

Midweek Visiter - - Queenscourt Hospice Column -

DO you have an idea that could ben­e­fit your com­mu­nity?

Won­der how you could do some­thing to sup­port peo­ple’s well­be­ing?

Then Liv­ing Well Sefton, the lo­cal col­lab­o­ra­tion of well­be­ing part­ners, could help.

It launched the third round of its Com­mu­nity Re­silience Grant re­cently at the Sefton CVS con­fer­ence and is par­tic­u­larly keen to hear from in­di­vid­u­als who want to im­prove their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Karen Nolan, co-or­di­na­tor of Liv­ing Well Sefton, ex­plains: “We have grants of £500 for small projects that are de­signed to in­crease peo­ple’s well­be­ing and our part­ners can sup­port in­di­vid­u­als to de­liver these projects.”

Al­ready sev­eral in­di­vid­u­als have been suc­cess­ful in securing a £500 grant.

These in­clude Bim Bam, which pro­vides a place for fam­i­lies who don’t speak English to so­cialise and build friend­ships.

An­other South­port project is Art for Arts Sake which re­ceived £500 to­wards ther­a­peu­tic art classes for older peo­ple to brush up on their paint­ing skills as well as meet other peo­ple.

In ad­di­tion, there are grants avail­able to or­gan­i­sa­tions work­ing in part­ner­ship to im­prove health and well­be­ing.

The max­i­mum grant avail­able is £5,000 per part­ner­ship.

Dead­line for all ap­pli­ca­tions is Fri­day, Novem­ber 17.

The Liv­ing Well Sefton team is look­ing for­ward to re­ceiv­ing your ap­pli­ca­tion. For fur­ther de­tails, visit www.liv­ing­wellsefton . org.uk, call the team on 0300 323 0181 or email LWS@sefton­cvs.org.uk
