Try It! Week 12-16 April 2015

LCVS and Mi want your organisation to try something new!

If you would like to run a ‘taster’ session of an activity you haven’t tried before, LCVS and Mi are offering grants of up to £500 to voluntary/community groups that can commit to the following criteria:

  • The activity should take place between 12 and 16 April 2015
  • It should primarily be aimed at older people
  • It should be health and well-being focused
  • It should be something your organisation hasn’t done before
  • There will be a requirement for each participant to complete a short evaluation questionnaire.

We anticipate that most awards will be in the region of £100 – £200 to support one or two activity sessions during the week.  However, if you wish to run a number of sessions within the timescale, we will consider awarding up to £500.

To apply for this funding, you need to be a constituted organisation, and have a bank account that requires at least two signatories. You also need to confirm that you have in place an appropriate safeguarding policy and adequate public liability insurance.

The closing date for applications is Monday 16 March 2015. The application form can be found at www.lcvs.org.uk in the funding and grants section.
