SCVO is working in partnership with the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to help build long-term resilience within Sandwell Communities.
The purpose of the EPIC Grant Programme is to enable local voluntary and community organisations to access funding that supports the following broad outcomes:
- Increased resilience within communities
- Increased self-reliance
- Improved and stronger relationships within the community
- Residents are involved in the design and delivery of activities that make a positive change in their communities
- Asset and strengths based – building on what exists in communities Extensive community conversations have helped to shape the elements of this programme.
The grant programme is aimed at improving the wellbeing of communities, and tackling isolation and loneliness. It does this by developing stronger relationships and building on what exists within communities. This could include making the most of community spaces, improving access to transport and using people’s skills, talents and experience.
All potential applicants must have an initial conversation with SCVO Community Partnerships Coach, Liz Webster, for further information please email email@example.com
