We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Cheshire Community Foundation to support Assura PLC to deliver this £100,000 Assura Community Fund programme.

The programme will support a diverse range of health and wellbeing projects in Wales that are delivering activities and services within a 30 mile radius of an Assura healthcare building in Wales.

Check HERE to check if your project is within a 30 mile radius of an Assura Healthcare building.

Programme activities must be targeted towards improving mental and emotional health and wellbeing, gaining support for life challenges and providing increased activities and opportunities to learn new skills, to enable improved self-confidence, self-esteem and a strong sense of belonging.

This may include (but are not limited to):

  • Community social prescribing activities
  • social action/volunteering
  • Befriending
  • Giving confidence to vulnerable people to re-join social activities

What grants are available?

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available for projects delivered for up to one year commencing October 2022.

The programme is not seeking to prioritise funding of a small contribution towards large scale, high-value projects, where the Assura grant is a very small part.

Who can apply?

The programme is aimed at small to medium sized, locally based, not-for-profit UK organisations including –

  • registered charities,
  • constituted community groups
  • Social Enterprises
  • CICs.

Regional or National organisations are not eligible – the fund is seeking to support local charitable groups and organisations.
