The National Academy for Social Prescribing and Arts Council England have announced the launch of a new £1.4 million Thriving Communities Fund, established to develop local social prescribing activities across England. Social prescribing is a way of connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support. Funding will encourage partnerships led by voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups and organisations working in the arts, nature, sport, financial wellbeing, and health and care to increase social prescribing activities that benefit their communities and provide support for people impacted by Covid-19, particularly Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities. Grants of between £25,000 and £50,000 will be available and partnerships will need to provide 20% match funding. The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 8th January 2021. Click here
