Emotional Health and Wellbeing grant

The Emotional Health and Wellbeing Grant scheme is funded by Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and the Healthier Together Programme via South Gloucestershire Council.

The deadline for this grant scheme has now passed and applicants will be contacted in due course.

Grant Information

Covid-19 and lockdown have had a negative effect on the mental health and emotional wellbeing of many people across South Gloucestershire. Impacts include anxiety about Covid-19 itself, money worries, isolation, problems sleeping and just a general feeling of helplessness. We are seeking ideas for community partners to address these issues through creative, community led solutions.

Grants will be allocated to local community organisations and new mutual aid groups to develop approaches to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the populations they represent and work with, particularly with those communities most affected by Covid-19.

Application Process

We are keen to receive applications from new mutual aid groups and other small community organisations. Projects should be new and emerging, be based in South Gloucestershire and be able to go live by the end of November 2020.

Grants will be distributed between £500 and £10,000. All funding should be spent within 12 months of award.

We publish all grant awards to meet our obligations under the Local Government Transparency Code. This code is issued to meet the government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.

Since 2013 we have published our payment data made through the following schemes:

  • Community Grants
  • New Homes Bonus
  • Positive Activities Subsidy
  • Three Year Grants

Awards made under Member Awarded Funding have been published since its launch in October 2016, and awards made under the Area Wide Grant scheme have been published since December 2017. All award data is available on the Open Data webpage.
