SCVO is working in partnership with the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to help build long term resilience within Sandwell Communities.

The purpose of the EPIC (Empowering People in Communities) 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

EPIC is a 3 year grant programme aimed at improving the wellbeing of communities and tackling isolation and loneliness by building stronger relationships and building on what exists within communities.

Grants up to £80,000 will be available, for projects that are aimed at people of all ages who feel lonely or isolated and projects that aim to improve the wellbeing of communities.

Applicants can apply for 3 different levels of funding;

  • under £10,000

  • £40,001 to £80,000 (working in collaboration)

Applications for Round 1 will open on Monday 28th January 2019 and will close on Friday 15th March 2019.
