THE HAPPINESS FUND – Health and wellbeing fund
Posted on: April 21, 2022
Funding grassroots, neighbourhood-based community projects throughout the UK.
The Happiness Fund is available to enable and support projects which improve mental health and wellbeing, inclusion, learning and skills development in local communities. Ultimately it creates happier people and neighbourhoods – think Holly Willoughby meets Sponge Bob Square Pants.
£2,500 per quarter
The fund is intended to support the setting up of new groups and activities, but to be successful, applicants will need to indicate how the activity/group can become self-sustainable or able to attract funding from other sources for the longer term.
The fund will award £2,500 per quarter – allowing up to four different projects per year to apply. Each project and associated people can only apply once in a funding year.
Who can apply?
To apply for the fund your project must be: (applications are welcomed from individuals and small businesses)
- Based in your local community
- Focused on longevity
Applications will not be considered for:
- Large national charities
- One-off events such as Christmas meals, day trips etc.
- Paying salaries, accommodation or rent
- Public Sector organisations
