Dundee VA - Capacity Building Small Grants Fund

Summary

The Small Grants Fund aims to build the capacity of communities to deliver services which ensure people are able to look after and improve their own health and wellbeing and live in good health for longer. Funding is available to support the delivery of projects across all adult services. They are looking for new and innovative projects that test new ways of working for your organisation, your community and/or Dundee. In particular they are looking for projects that adopt a co-productive way of working, i.e. involving stakeholders in the design, delivery and evaluation of projects. Priority areas are: mental health; alcohol and drug misuse; obesity; older people; adults with physical disabilities and learning disabilities; carers support services.
