Aims/priorities: Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Community Wellbeing Team at Action Together are working with the local community to increase creative wellbeing activity in Tameside. The main aim of the Creative Wellbeing Programme is to reduce demand and dependency on health and social care services by connecting people who have long term health conditions to community-based activities and services to help improve their own health and wellbeing.
We would like to fund activities/projects that aim to positively contribute to people’s health or wellbeing. Examples would be; online singing for reduction in asthma symptoms or to reduce loneliness and isolation, posting craft materials to reduce stress, or an online art club. The activity/project may be developing/expanding existing provision or it can also be new activity. Either way it must be something creative and delivered safely, and with the aim of positively impacting on the wellbeing of Tameside residents.
Who can apply? Voluntary, Community Faith and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) groups who are members of Action Together and are based and operate in Tameside. If you are not already a member of Action Together, you can become a member for free by registering here.
Grant amount: Up to £1,000.
Application process: You can find the guidance notes and application form here. Please read the guidance notes carefully before applying.
Deadline: Friday 26 February 2021, 23:59
