Building a Healthier Medway - 2nd Round of the Involving Medway Community Grants programme05-Jul-2017
The second round of Involving Medway grants are now available to Medway community groups looking to engage local residents to support healthier living and more active communities.
Involving Medway works to encourage local people to get involved
with and help make decisions about health services. They are also working to gather views and make sure local people have their voices heard.
The Involving Medway Community Grants Programme is designed
to support people and small community groups in the local area who would like to run a community focused project based in and supporting the people
Grants of up to £1,500 are available for activities such as hall hire for coffee mornings; equipment for a common community space; days out for group of carers or help to set up a peer support group.
The intention is to increase the range of activities which would go toward benefiting a person’s physical or mental health, as well as encourage the growth of local initiatives that have been started and run by residents living in the Medway.
It is intended that bringing people together will create stronger connections between people living in the area and challenge issues such as isolation.
Kent Community Foundation (KCF) is managing the applications to provide grants to local groups
or organisations that want to deliver short term or one-off activities. The groups can be either registered voluntary sector organisations or similar
types of structured groups of local residents.
