Community Resilience & Wellbeing Grant
Welcome to the new Stroud District Council Community Resilience & Wellbeing Grant.
This grant replaces the SDC Community Investment Grant and has been re-written to better reflect the current needs of our communities and voluntary sector.
The Stroud District Council Community Recovery and Wellbeing Grant aims to reduce inequality, promote wellbeing and support our communities to recover in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant will support groups who work with their communities to reduce inequality and promote aspects of wellbeing such as physical, mental and financial health, social connection, arts, culture, heritage and the environment.
Each question is equally weighted. Due to the breadth of the funding criteria you will find that some questions in the application may be less applicable to your activities than others. Do not be concerned by this but do try to answer the questions that are relevant to your activities as fully as possible.
