The First for Wellbeing Target Fund will offer grants from £500 up to £20,000 to develop ongoing project activity or initiate new project activity supporting people's health and wellbeing for the Northampton wards of Castle and Spencer and the Wellingborough ward of Swanspool.
The project activity must be specifically targeting people and communities who are vulnerable or socially isolated or suffer from loneliness and poor mental wellbeing.
The project activity MUST have a community development approach and show how this work will continue beyond one year of funding. The role of community development is to support people and communities to identify and articulate their needs, and to take practical collective action to address them.
Projects will be considered across a range of activities including arts,culture, education and skills, environment, tackling disadvantage and exclusion, sports and recreation.
Your application must explain how the activities will support the improvement of health and wellbeing for individuals and communities for example reducing social isolation and loneliness, improving people's physical, emotional and mental health, improving the quality of the local environment and use of public space.
Example projects may include:
