Our Community Grant Scheme has been extremely effective since its launch in 2016 and we have donated over £17,000 to some very worthy causes and will be continuing into 2020!

In 2019 our grant has supported Imago; who used the funding to launch a number of new groups to tackle loeliness and isolation, Wellbeing Link; who will used funding to promote their healthy eating project and the Golden Girls group, who used the funding to support speakers and people to lead sessions on crafting along with a fish and chip lunch where the members invited their friends.

We are extremely grateful to Bluebird Care Gravesham and Dartford for this generous grant, which will help us to tackle loneliness and social isolation in our communities!

As we strive to continue supporting our local community in every way that we can, our Community Grant Scheme remains an extremely important initative for us. It is something that we are proud of and we feel it extremely important to continue the scheme into 2020.

Our 2020 Community Grant Scheme consists of three grants of £250 with the first to be presented in April 2020. Applications are now open with a deadline of 17th February.

We are extremely grateful to Bluebird Care Gravesham and Dartford for this generous grant. Enabling people to eat more healthily will reduce instances of ill health and obesity.

Sue Woodley, Wellbeing Link Founder

The criteria for applications remains the same, however we will now be compiling a short video at each presentation to be used on social media and raise awareness of the valuable work of our local community organisations.

  • Be based (and support people) in Gravesham or Dartford
  • Primarily support those aged 60+
  • Not use the grant as part of a round of funding
