Who can apply?
Grants will be considered from charities and community groups that focus on supporting communities affected by issues caused and are intrinsically linked with the Covid 19 pandemic.
Grants can be awarded for applications demonstrating how the project will provide services and improve outcomes in one or more of the following areas:
- Mental Health
- Bereavement support
- PSE (Personal Social Education)
- Domestic Violence Support (including women’s refuges)
- Isolation / befriending / listening services
- The vulnerable and elderly
- Dementia / quality of life
- Social prescribing – alleviating the pressure from the NHS
- Getting back to work – innovative travel (cycle schemes) / reducing carbon footprint
- Employment – reskilling people (not so much those that support with CV writing but those that actively prepare people for a new job / new career, interview prep etc)
- Outdoor projects – making changes so that services can be delivered outside
Wesleyan Foundation would like to also support organisations and charities that focus on supporting Black/African Caribbean communities following the recent BLM conversations. We are unable to support any projects which focus on campaigning. However we can support projects which focus on health, vulnerable groups, employability.
Projects must fall into activities which form part of the current aims of the fund above.
The funds available for this programme are very limited, and therefore only likely to support 3-5 applicants. So please ensure the work you seek a grant towards has a close fit with the above criteria. Also, please do read the guidelines that are available at the bottom of this page. Due to the limited funds available the programme is open for a limited period.
- Grants are for the Bristol area only, and applicants must be Bristol based.
- This programme is intended to support groups/organisation who have been in operation for at least two years, with income less than £500,000 (as shown in your most recent accounts).
- Decisions on applications received are due to be made in mid-June 2021. Please factor this into the timescales of the work you are seeking a grant towards – projects/activities outlined in applications should be starting no earlier than July 2021.
