Closing date:  8 January 2021 | Midday


The Thriving Communities Fund will support local voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCSFSE) 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.

This funding is designed to increase social connectedness, and help communities cope with the impact of COVID-19.

Grant range: £25,000 - £50,000

By working with those communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities, the projects we will fund will help to:

  • enhance collaboration and networking between local organisations
  • strengthen the range of social prescribing activities offered locally and enable social prescribing link workers to connect people to more creative community activities and services
  • Explore ways to make these partnerships and activities sustainable over time

Application Open Date: 12pm (midday), 23 November 2020

Application Deadline: 12pm (midday), 8 January 2021
