Community

Warm and Welcoming Wellbeing Grants available from Malvern Hills District Council – deadline: 24th November

Warm and Welcoming Wellbeing Grants

Small grants (£50-£500) are available to organisations in Malvern Hills District to support residents across the district, by providing free spaces and places for them to go to connect and stay well over the winter period.

Grant funding is available as part of the Household Support Fund, to support community organisations across the district, this could be to provide a new service or to develop a current offer over the winter period. 

Please note, there is a finite budget available to support projects. When allocating funding, consideration will be given to the following:

  • the amount of time each project is able to open each week. We are particularly keen to support sessions that are open on evenings, weekends and school holidays, and are accessible to families, but we will consider applications for week daytime provision too.
  • we are keen to support provision that includes either hot drinks or food as part of the offer and activities that children of all ages can enjoy. 

Organisations can apply for up to £500 to support with:

  • Utility Bills, pay for energy efficient ways to keep the space warm.
  • To open up your community venue more frequently and allow greater access for families.
  • Staff or volunteer costs to open the facility
  • Set up costs and marketing.
  • Purchasing food supplies
  • Purchasing catering equipment to enable you to provide food and refreshments
  • Working with a partner organisation to deliver food
  • Activities suitable for children and families to take part in at no or little cost

For questions/ support with the application form please contact claire.vaughan@malvernhills.gov.uk  

Please request a short expression of interest form from Claire, and return this by Friday 24th November 2024.

20’s Plenty For Us!

20’s Plenty for Us is ‘not for profit’ with over 600 local groups campaigning to make cities, towns and villages around the world better places to be.

We campaign for a speed limit of 20mph to be normal on residential streets and in town and village centres, unless full consideration of the needs of vulnerable road users allows a higher limit on particular streets.

We believe that communities can decide that “20’s Plenty Where People Live”.

  • Most of the UK’s larger cities have adopted 20mph for their residential streets
  • 28 million people in the UK live in places where 20mph is or will be the urban/village norm.
  • Wales is about to implement a 20mph national default for residential roads.
  • The General Assembly of the United Nations endorses 20mph or 30km/h speed limits where people mix with motor vehicles, unless strong evidence exists that higher speeds are safe.

Kenswick & Wichenford PC have registered their support for this campaign and have also notified County Cllr Mike Rouse and the Local Policing Team of our support for the scheme.
