Community Cash Fund

Our small grants scheme enables groups and individuals to apply for up to £2,000 of funding to deliver projects that enhance and promote health and wellbeing within local communities.

Our priorities for recent grant funding focussed on mental health and children and young adults.  The successful organisations for 2019/20 were:

  1. Yellow Brick Road Project – based in Andover
    The funding will support weekly sessions running on a health and wellbeing theme titled – We Matter 
  2. Shots Foundation – based in Aldershot
    The funding will support proving weekly 5-a-side football tournament for people affected by poor mental health 
  3. The Moving on Project – based in Fareham 
    The funding will support young people who have experienced substance abuse 
  4.  Basingstoke and District Young Carers – based in Basingstoke 
    The funding will support young carers who miss out on school educational trips by providing an opportunity for them to experience a day out on a farm which will also include them gaining life skills
  5. The Rose Road Association – Hampshire wide 
    The funding will support providing sessions to gather information about the attitudes and perceptions of CAMHS to help break down the barriers of accessing the service

Reports on these projects will be available soon.

This is a great opportunity for small community groups and individuals to get funding.  The projects help local people, promote health and wellbeing, and gives us feedback on user experiences.

Young people

Highlights from 2017-18

2017/18 was fantastic as we were able to fund six local projects. The focus was on seldom heard groups, particularly those that are very hard to reach such as refugees, asylum seekers, homeless and gypsy and traveller communities.

Highlights from 2016-17

In 2016 we encourage applications for new ideas that would explore people’s experiences of local health and care services, with a particularly focus on projects providing feedback from mental health service users.
