Bluebird Care Medway Community Care Grant

Bluebird Care Medway Community Care Grant is now available every three months

Bluebird Care (Medway) is a homecare provider working with customers to help them remain living independently in the comfort of their own home. We work with customers, their families, Social Services, GP’s and many other care professionals to ensure everyone receives care tailored to their own individual needs.

We offer a unique service tailoring care visits which range from 30 minutes to full live in care. As well as personal care we also help with meal preparation, welfare checks, shopping, social trips, visits to the hospital and provide extra support for post-discharge customers.  As a locally owned and run business, we are passionate about supporting community projects that make a positive difference in people’s lives – particularly the older members of society, people living with mental health issues, physical disabilities or learning disabilities.  It is for this reason we are giving away our Bluebird Care Grant of £250 every three months.

To apply for the grant your organisation must fulfil the following two criteria.

  • The organisation and/or its beneficiaries must be based in the Medway area.
  • The applicant must run or coordinate a project

If you feel that you meet the criteria and wish to apply for the grant, then please include the following with your application: -

  • The mission statement of the organisation and web address if possible.
  • Provide a clear explanation of the project/initiative for which the funds are required.
  • Provide evidence of how the project benefits people living with mental health issues or people living with physical or learning disabilities.
  • Provide evidence of the benefit to the community
  • Confirm that any funds granted will be used only for the project/initiative described in the application form.

Applications are more likely to succeed if they aim to support people, training skills and activities.
 
With the applicant’s permission we would like to be able to use reports about their project in any future publicity linked with Bluebird Care
