The 2022-23 Hall Green NNS Small Grants Programme is now open for applications.
About the Fund
A total of £125,750 is available through the NNS Hall Green Small Grants Fund until March 2023.
The central aim of the local commissioning process is to increase the number of older people and adults with a long-term disability who are participating in community activities in their neighbourhood, and in doing so either prevent or reduce social isolation and loneliness.
Individual grant awards must relate to one the following priority outcome areas:
- Digital Inclusion
- Advice & Support (Including Peer Support)
- Affordable Warmth and Fuel Poverty
- Arts & Culture
- Bereavement, Death and Personal Loss
- Social Activity & Community Involvement
- Employment, Volunteering & Skills
- Transport & Mobility
- Income Maximisation
- Support to Under-represented Groups
- Supporting Carers
- Support to Live Independently at Home e.g. gardening, handyperson
Activities must take place in the Hall Green constituency which includes the neighbourhoods of: Moseley, Kings Heath, Hall Green, Balsall Heath, Sparkbrook and Sparkhill. The beneficiaries of these grants must be primarily over 50s and/or adults with a long-term disability.
Grants are available to not-for profit voluntary organisations, community groups, registered charities and community interest companies. Community groups and organisations do not need to be formally constituted. Work must be delivered in the Hall Green constituency, but you don’t need to be based here.
