the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.
The fund will open to applications on April 1st and close for applications on May 14th 2021.
Local Care Direct has created a fund to improve the health and wellbeing of Kirklees residents. This fund will be administered in partnership with One Community Foundation Kirklees
We welcome applications that address one or more of the following themes:
Health Inequalities -
Health inequalities arise because of the conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work and age. These conditions influence our opportunities for good health and how we think, feel
and act, shaping our mental health, physical health and wellbeing. For example, Socioeconomic status and deprivation: e.g. unemployed, low income, people living in deprived areas
(e.g. poor housing, poor education and/or unemployment).
For example, crisis services for those experiencing a mental health crisis. Advocacy support. LGBTIQ+ mental health support. Peer support bringing together people with shared
experiences to support each other. Suicide prevention and interventions.
For example, services to help people living with dementia in Kirklees to achieve the best possible quality of life, as well as providing support and assistance to families and carers.
Reducing social isolation and loneliness
For example, services or projects which help people of any age, race or gender who feel isolated or lonely to explore and rediscover their interests, meet new friends, build their confidence and start doing the things they like doing again. This includes projects which offer, face to face, telephone support services, digital support, or other means of communication.
For example, services or project which offer support to those who are sleeping rough, sofa surfing or at risk of homelessness. Projects could include housing advice benefits advice for those who are at risk of homelessness or are homeless. Accommodation brokerage, including for those fleeing domestic abuse to
find a safe home and settle in or access refuge support.
Applications should show that they will have a lasting positive impact on individuals and families in Kirklees.
Holistic approach - demonstrating partnership working or good working relationships with health and welfare services
Targeted work - focusing provision to where the need is greatest; considering those disproportionately affected by health inequalities, such as BAME communities, young carers,
people with disabilities, LGBQT+ communities and those on or below the poverty line.
