Suicide Prevention Small Grants Fund 2020/21

7 Feb

Sheffield City Council is pleased to launch the Suicide Prevention Small Grants Fund to support men’s mental health in the city. The fund is for existing or new activity that helps enhance and promote men’s mental health with a specific focus on suicide prevention.  Priority will be given to applications that support activities for men planned by local men themselves, with a focus on improving men’s mental health, reducing social isolation, raising awareness of suicide, reducing stigma, creating safe spaces, increasing access to timely help and support and increasing uptake of suicide prevention training.

 

All applications are expected to demonstrate how they meet one or more of the fund priorities, listed below;

  • Increase awareness of and reduce stigma associated with suicide in men
  • Create/build safe spaces for men to talk about mental health and suicide
  • Increase men’s awareness of suicide and where and how to access timely help and support
  • Increase access and take up of suicide prevention training, especially the Zero Suicide Alliance awareness training found here zerosuicidealliance.com

 

The total grant amount available is £30,000.  Organisations and partnerships can apply for between £500 to £2,500.

 

Application documents and guidance can be found at www.sheffield.gov.uk/grants and the closing date is Friday 13th March 2020.

This Girl Can Community Fund

7 Feb

This fund aims to support women aged 16+ to get active by offering National Lottery grants to local projects that will contribute to overcoming the barriers some women face in getting active: from a lack of opportunities offered in their local area, to cost and availability of childcare.

Sport England is looking to support a wide range of ideas – from those that just need a few hundred pounds, to larger projects nearer £10,000.  They may be able to support a few exceptional projects with funding above this level. They believe that you’re best placed to tell us what’s needed in your community. So, invite you to share your ideas of how to get more local women more active.

Music for All – Community Project Funding

17 Jan

Grants up to £2,500 are available to UK-based community groups that aim to bring musical projects to their local communities.

Funding Options:

Individual Grant

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments and lessons. Our Grant Application process allows us to help people fulfil their musical dreams. Young, old, regardless of personal or life challenges, we truly want music to be for all.

Community Project Funding

Many projects and initiatives take place throughout the UK that all aim to bring music to their community. Most would benefit from a “helping hand” to fulfil their potential in becoming truly sustainable music programmes.

Deadline 01 February 2020

Small Grants for Community Groups

18 Dec

Grants

Community Fund

8 Aug

Does your organisation work with council tenants, or in and around council housing estates in Sheffield? Do you have an idea for an exciting, innovative project which would benefit council tenants but don’t have the money you need to get it off the ground?

If so, your organisation could be eligible for a grant from our Community Fund. The fund aims to support stronger, successful communities by making grants available to local voluntary, community and self-help groups wanting to make a difference in their local neighbourhood. A total of £70,000 was spent in 18/19, shared across Sheffield’s 28 electoral wards and we have funded some great projects! This year we have £178,000 to support community led projects across the city.

This is funded by public money and so there are, of course, a few rules about who can apply, what sort of projects it can be used for and how applications are assessed. But we have kept these to a minimum and made the process as simple as possible – with an easy-to-complete application form and clear guidance documents to help you put your application together.

Apply for the Community Fund

The next funding round closes on 31 August 2019.

Eligible organisations can apply for grants up to £2500, depending on which ward they are based and how much has already been awarded. Organisations will need to demonstrate in their application how their project would benefit council tenants in their community.

You can apply by downloading the forms and sending them to communityfund@sheffield.gov.uk or posting them to:

Lynne Clark
Community Fund Team
c/o Future of Council Housing
Freepost – RTJK – XUAB – GXZC

Virgin Money Foundation – Heart of the Community Fund

1 Aug

Heart of the Community Fund!

Here at the Virgin Money Foundation, we’re on a mission to support community regeneration by backing people who can make big changes happen locally.

We love helping local communities thrive – and we’d love to see applications from community organisations working at the heart of your city.

Every three months, we’re giving three local community organisations the chance to win £2,000 – with awards of £1,000 and £500 for the runners-up.

There is a voting unit in the Sheffield Lounge and the awards will go to the community organisations with the most votes from Virgin Money customers and Lounge members.

Just our bag

We’d love to support projects:

>         Run by smaller local community organisations. That means annual running costs of less than £500,000.

>         Working in the parts of the City that need money the most.

>         With strong local roots.

>         Benefiting the wider community.

Funds can be used to buy materials and equipment, make improvements to a community building or sports facility, clean up an area of wasteland or support an event. The money could also pay for staff to run an activity.

Charities and community organisations should apply to the Virgin Money foundation online by visiting virginmoneyfoundation.org.uk and selecting the Heart of the Community Fund.
