Early Grant Information for NGOs

Funded projects will be supporting local residents to increase community connections, improve health and wellbeing and engage more people with the arts and cultural opportunities in the local area.

There are three strands to the Inspiring Communities Fund:

Communities and People: The Inspiring Communities Fund wants to bring people together to get to know their neighbours and to build a strong sense of community. Good communication helps people understand what is going on in their area and encourages people to feel connected. Projects should work with local residents to provide opportunities to learn new things, meet new people and to feel a common link with their area and neighbours. Support could be provided through a variety of different ways including, but not limited to:
Encouraging people from different areas or backgrounds to come together.
Utilising local open spaces to increase community networks and reduce isolation.
Activities that bring together local residents to build relationships and increase their sense of community involvement.
Projects that demonstrate a lasting impact on reducing the isolation of local residents.
Activities engaging local people in improving the local environment e.g. litter picking, promoting recycling etc.
Health and Wellbeing: Wellbeing is vital to enable communities and people to thrive and build resilience. The Inspiring Communities Fund is keen to support projects working to improve the health and wellbeing of participants through engaging and activity based projects. Support could be provided through a variety of different ways including, but not limited to:
Keep-fit groups or fitness classes with a clear link to improving health and/or wellbeing.
Activities that empower people to make healthy lifestyle choices and prioritise their wellbeing.
Projects that are supporting people with an identified health or wellbeing issue e.g. mental, physical, emotional or situational.
Interactive approaches to engaging residents in improving their health and wellbeing.
Arts and Culture Newham has above the national average ratings for arts, heritage and culture with a high number of available local amenities. However, there are large numbers of local residents, particularly children and young people, who are not currently benefiting or engaging in creative activities. More can be done to promote and engage children and young people in the local arts, heritage and cultural opportunities available. Support could be provided through a variety of different ways including, but not limited to:
Activities and/or events that engage residents (particularly children and young people) in the local arts, heritage and cultural opportunities.
Giving residents access to cultural opportunities they haven’t had access to previously.
Using the arts, culture and/or heritage of the local area to bring people together, inspire them and encourage them creatively.
Projects that teach local residents new creative art forms such as drama, dancing, art, photography, music etc.
