Supporting organisations tackling local isolation and loneliness

Deadline: 
Thursday, 18 April 2019 (All day)

Grants of £5,000 to £20,000 a year for up to three years are available for local organisations making a positive impact on the lives of local people who are lonely and isolated by helping them connect with other residents, social activities and support.

The projects that Kensington & Chelsea Foundation will invest in will demonstrate how they are reaching out to local people of all ages who feel isolated and helping them to connect with others, leading to improved physical and mental health. Projects will encourage:

  • A positive impact on the lives of isolated and lonely people across our borough
  • Increased access for those who are lonely through organisations reaching out to new clients
  • Improved physical, mental and emotional health for vulnerable people
  • Improved community cohesion and social integration
  • Local people feeling closer to others and supported as part of a meaningful social network
  • Collaborations or joint working between community partners and groups and different generations
