Bee Well Crafternoons with Stitched UpApplication for funding to run Bee Well Crafternoons -wellbeing craft sessions for those experiencing mental health difficulties
Benefit of funding local projects
Identifying funding empowers communities to deliver the solutions they have designed. Research has shown that staff who can offer mediation, guidance and support in the funding application and project process are as important to community groups as receiving the funding itself. Staff who have a good knowledge of the area and who needs support, enable funding to be accessed by more marginalised people and groups. Funding sometimes needs to come from multiple sources and Neighbourhood Health Workers save time being able to quickly identify multiple potential sources.
