The Thriving Communities Fund will support local voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCSFSE) projects that bring together place-based partnerships to improve and increase the range and reach of available social prescribing community activities – especially for those people most impacted by COVID-19 and health inequalities.
his funding is designed to increase social connectedness, and help communities cope with the impact of COVID-19.
By working with those communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities, the projects we will fund will help to:
- enhance collaboration and networking between local organisations
- strengthen the range of social prescribing activities offered locally and enable social prescribing link workers to connect people to more creative community activities and services
- Explore ways to make these partnerships and activities sustainable over time
With a grant range between £25,000 & £50,000
Applications can be placed through the Arts Council website.
