Funding Opportunity for Voluntary and Community Organisations across BNSSG (UK)

Funding Opportunity for Voluntary and Community Organisations across BNSSG (UK)

Deadline: 16-Sep-22

The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Integrated Care Board is seeking applications for its Community Boost Grants Programme.

The Community Boost grants programme is a one-off funding opportunity being offered by Healthier Together and administered by Age UK Bristol. The grants are intended to support local communities to set up their own activities or projects that will benefit people experiencing or at risk of poor health – whether that is due to long-term health conditions, significant life events, marginalisation or discrimination, stress, lack of financial security, or being unable to access opportunities for exercise or healthy meals. The money for this funding has come from the NHS Inequalities Improvement Programme.

Although Age UK Bristol is administering the grants, projects do not need to focus on older people. The Community Boost grants will support organisations, groups and individuals running projects and activities that improve the wellbeing of younger people, older people, families, or people of all ages in the BNSSG area. Applications are scored and funding awarded by a citizens’ panel.

Funding Information
Groups can apply to receive up £2,000 to fund their activity.
What they can fund?
They are particularly looking to support new activities, as well as ways to bring new people to an existing activity.
Strong applications will show how local people support the activity, and how it will continue beyond the funding.
Activities should not duplicate those already happening locally.
What is the fund unable to support payments for?
The Community Boost grant cannot be used to fund:
Salaries of any staff in the organisation applying to the fund
Payments for work done by the person named on the application for
Any expenditure incurred or committed before the funding is agreed
Political or religious activities (They can support activities run by faith-based groups or in religious buildings, as long as the activity is open to people of all faiths and beliefs)
Eligibility Criteria
Community Boost grants are open to any group, individual, or not-for-profit organisation.
They particularly encourage applications from people and groups who are unable to access other small funding pots, and they have tried to make the application process as simple and transparent as possible.
