FUNDING: Active Richmond – apply at any time

A new £65,000 Active Richmond fund has been launched to help local community organisations and small businesses offer activities which boost health and wellbeing in the borough.

Active Richmond has been created by Richmond Council to support local organisations to help build a suite of cultural, social and physical activities available via the programme.

Voluntary and community organisations and small businesses in Richmond upon Thames can now apply for Micro Grants of up to £500 and Main Grants of up £5,000 grants to support Social Prescribing projects that enable people to become physically active to improve their health and wellbeing - it could be to become more active at home or outdoor activity, such as leisure or fitness classes or participating in arts and parks activities.

Applications can be submitted at any time and it is anticipated that the Council will respond to the applicants applying to Micro Grants within 2-4 weeks and Main Grants within 6-8 weeks
