South Sefton CCG & Southport & Formby CCG Funding for local VCF groups March 28th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments South Sefton CCG & Southport & Formby CCG Funding for local VCF groups Sefton CVS are pleased to announce that, following the success of the previous funding, the Southport and Formby and the South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have agreed to invest in a further round of grants to the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector in Sefton. Click here to visit the dedicated Sefton CCg VCF Fund website http://seftonccgfund.wordpress.com/ There are some similarities with the previous grant round, however there are some significant differences. In the last two years there has been a great deal of analysis and consultation by the CCGs and through the Health and Well-Being Board that has involved much input from the VCF sector as well as Sefton MBC and other partners. Based on this work, the forthcoming grant round will be focused on the following priorities: Adult Mental Health – Long Term Conditions Older People – Social Isolation Older People – Dementia Children and Young People – Obesity Children and Young People – Emotional Health and Well-Being Children and Young People – Transitions Organisations can apply for up to £50,000 in total, but can be part of consortia bids as well. For smaller organisations with an income of less than £50,000 per year, there is to be a simpler application process for grants of up to £5000. The forms for this fund will be issued shortly and there will be 3 rounds during the year. As with last time there will be an expectation that successful organisations will achieve the Star Standard Quality Assurance mark and will undertake a module of the Workplace Well-Being Chartermark The closing date for applications is Thursday 24th April 2014.
