Final Round of Befriending Champions Microgrant Funding

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Thursday 22 March 2018.  

Befriending Champions Microgrants are for projects or activities anywhere in Derbyshire (excluding Derby City) that help people to be less lonely and isolated.  Projects might include, for example, setting up or developing a good neighbour initiative, a social group, befriending or other activities that bring adults of any age together to reduce social isolation.  Successful applicants will be expected to attend (or have attended) a one-day Befriending Champion training session.  Grants of up to £1,000 are available.  

For this final round of Befriending Champions Microgrant funding we will prioritise funding for projects or activities in Derbyshire Dales, Erewash and Bolsover as those areas have had fewer grants.
