Partner organisations across Norfolk and Waveney through data, workshops and focus groups, have identified three key cohorts:
Evidence suggests that people identifying as male especially struggle to access support in their community around their mental health and wellbeing. We are particularly keen to hear from projects that support:
- Young men between the ages of 18 and 25
- Men experiencing financial challenges
- Men experiencing relationship breakdown
- Fathers in engaging with wellbeing activities
- Men with alcohol or drug dependency
- The wellbeing of male refugees and asylum seekers
Families dealing with post pandemic worries, and those families with mental illness in the home are a key priority group, we are seeking to fund family focused interventions, with evidence to suggest that the activity will have a demonstratable impact or is accepted best practice, relating to mental wellbeing support.
Adults with long term health conditions
Can be helped to improve their mental wellbeing through accessing local community activities such as arts, culture, leisure and environmental projects. The fund is seeking:
- Those projects tackling social isolation, aiming to increase informal support networks particularly for those who have been isolated during the pandemic, such as those who were clinically extremely vulnerable.
- Intergenerational peer support projects which build on assets in the community
- Projects which support an individual to engage in activities which help their wellbeing
Organisations can make an application to one priority area only.
