good life, good death, good grief

Small grants to support Compassionate Communities

We have a limited number of small grants available to support those wishing to undertake action to decrease social isolation or offer practical support to vulnerable groups over the coming weeks. You can also apply for a grant if you want to take action within Compassionate Communities week (27 April - 3 May) to acknowledge the work of your own community.

The grants (of up to £100) can be used for any initiative that during the COVID-19 outbreak will help to:

  • Bring communities together
  • Decrease social isolation
  • Provide bereavement support

We will consider all applications, but are particularly interested in supporting initiatives that:

  • show solidarity with or provide practical help to NHS, social care and other essential workers.
  • provide practical help within a local community or community of identity.
  • support the wellbeing of health and social care staff.
  • help decrease social isolation among vulnerable groups and people most severely affected by the coronavirus.
  • provide practical support to vulnerable groups and people most severely affected by the coronavirus.

This is a new scenario for all of us, so we're open to any ideas you may have, although you may like to have a look at events we have funded during previous awareness weeks for inspiration.

To apply
