The Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC) have partnered with Calderdale Cares Partnership to support not-for-profit organisations run programmes to help to make Calderdale a place where people live longer, safer, healthier lives.
Voluntary and community sector groups can apply for a grant of up to £5k ,up to £10k, or up to £25k to improve wellbeing with children up to 5 years old helping them get ready for school, or help young people develop well so that every 15 year old has hope and aspiration, that people have good emotional health and wellbeing resulting in fewer suicides, and people over 75 have strong social networks and are part of our community.
Neil Smurthwaite, Chief Operating Officer, NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board, part of Calderdale Care Partnerships explained, “We are committed to enabling people in Calderdale to live a larger life. We know this is a challenging time for voluntary and community services and are working together to better understand what support is needed for the future. These grants are an important step as they will help to facilitate projects to improve emotional health and wellbeing. If you have a project that could contribute to achieving the goals of the Calderdale Wellbeing Strategy, then we would encourage you to apply for funding.”
Steve Duncan, CEO of CFFC added, “Calderdale is well known for it’s resilience, but it is a journey so we are really pleased to be able to fund vital work to continue the work voluntary and community sector groups do to make Calderdale a place where people live longer, safer, healthier lives.”
