Specialist healthcare real estate investment trust, Assura, has launched a new Community Fund to support local health projects. Charities, local community groups, social enterprises and CICs can apply for grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 for activities targeted at improving mental and emotional health and wellbeing.
This might include supporting for life challenges that people may experience and providing increased activities and opportunities to learn new skill to enable improved self-confidence, self-esteem and a strong sense of belonging.
Funding will be provided for organisations supporting communities within a 15-mile radius of Assura GP surgeries, primary care and treatment centre buildings around the UK. The fund is managed by the Cheshire Community Foundation.
There is also a specific tranche of funding earmarked for strategic grant giving in Warrington.
The deadline for applications is the 14th September 2020.
