Wellbeing Re-imagined

This project is to operate a small grant scheme that can ensure that smaller groups and projects across Powys -which would otherwise lack the capacity to access European funds - are offered the support to do so in a manner commensurate with the size of the funding awarded.

The project will operate under the theme of health & wellbeing and will be linked to supporting organisations and projects that have developed or adapted services to support people during the Covid 19 pandemic, and which now need to adapt again to changing needs as we start the process of recovery and the return to a ‘new normal’.

The grant scheme will therefore seek to support projects that pilot new and innovative ways of delivering small scale health and wellbeing activities designed and delivered through local community actors.

The aims of the project can be summarised as:

● the enabling of smaller

organisations to access European

funding through animation and

mentoring of formal and informal

volunteering groups in Powys

● the assisting of the bottom up

development and piloting of micro

initiatives in communities across

Powys, combined with the

adaptation of existing services

delivering health and wellbeing

benefits to local residents

● the enhancement of the capacity of

Third-sector organisations and local

volunteers to plan and deliver

projects in their communities

● the identification of projects that

have the potential to be scaled up,

and the dissemination of the

learning of these projects through

the Community Sector Response

Group (CSRG) and the Powys

Social Value Forum (SVF).

The outcomes from the project will be:

● Improved health and wellbeing in

residents of communities across

Powys as a result of community

delivery of new or adapted activities

that have the potential to improve

physical and mental health post

Covid 19.

● Enhanced capacity in the voluntary

organisations of Powys communities to plan, fund and

execute local development projects

● At least one locally trialled initiative

adopted for scaling up for delivery

Powys wide.
