Five Ways to Well-being Small Grants Scheme

We are pleased to announce that, once again, we are running the Five Ways to Well-being small grants scheme on behalf of Derbyshire County Council, Public Health.

This scheme is about increasing the understanding of the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ and doing activities that include one or more of the five ways.

Projects must take place in the Derbyshire Dales or be for residents of the Derbyshire Dales.

Saltmine Theatre Company and Safer Derbyshire Dales Community Safety Team are pleased to invite you to a showcase performance and workshop of Saltmine’s e-safety programme Escape K3.4.

This show is for a number of school children but in the main professionals or interested community members to see what the risks young people and agencies working with them  are up against in today’s society

Music for All

The mission of the Music for All charity is to make more musicians and to enable and inspire more people to discover the mental and physical benefits that playing a musical instrument can bring.

The charity has two grant streams; one for individuals interested in learning an instrument and one for groups that would like to bring music to a community.

Grants for Community Safety Projects

The panel dealing with the Derbyshire County Council Action Grants has had many applications for funding in the categories Youth Activity, Community Activity, Physical Activity and Sport, but very few in the category Community Safety.

They would be very pleased to receive applications related to community safety, but please note that things like applications for defibrillators do not constitute community safety – the emphasis on this strand is related to reducing crime, fear of crime and tackling anti-social behaviour.
