Grants of up to £50,000 are available for local voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise 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.
The funding is for activities that will increase social connectedness and help communities cope with the impact of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.
The funded projects will work with the communities most affected by the pandemic, including Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities, and will help to:
- Strengthen the range of social prescribing activities offered locally
- Enhance collaboration and networking between local organisations
- Enable social prescribing link workers to connect people to more creative community activities and services.
