– Early Help Community Capacity Building Grant 2022

Grants of up to £3,000 are now available to help organisations deliver initiatives that support families, children and young people living on the Isle of Wight.

The Early Help Community Capacity Building Grant is available to local groups, clubs and enterprises through the Isle of Wight Council’s Strengthening Families Programme.

The funding is intended to help providers organise activities, clubs or groups for families, parents/carers and/or young people up to the age of 19 (up to 25 with specified additional needs).

Grants could be used to set up and run schemes such as parental, baby or toddler groups, teenage groups, family-based groups, mental health and welcoming sessions/hubs, peer support groups, outreach support and community-led groups and activities.

The grant application opens from today (Tuesday 4 January), and organisations are encouraged to apply by 24 January 2022. Activities will be expected to be up and running by 31 March 2022.
