The second Vital for Berkshire funding round is now open for applications, with grants of up to £10,000 available
Vital for Berkshire aims to increase support for people across Berkshire who are struggling to cope with a range of issues preventing them from having a safe home, good health and secure employment.
Vital for Berkshire goes beyond the statistics to uncover areas where pockets of deprivation can be found, and where local communities are struggling. A key message from Berkshire’s Vital Signs 2018 is that a safe home, good health and secure employment are interdependent and underpin wellbeing. Vital for Berkshire will raise awareness and funds, to support community groups that are helping people towards having a safe home, good health and secure employment.
Charities, community groups and social enterprises seeking funding for activities and projects in these areas can complete Berkshire Community Foundation’s online eligibility checker and eligible groups will be sent a link to the application form. The deadline for completed applications is 9am on 25 January 2019.
