Small Grants Schemes at DDCVS

Five Ways to Wellbeing

We continue to administer a small grants scheme on behalf of Derbyshire County Council, Public Health. This scheme is about increasing the understanding of the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ by people in the Derbyshire Dales who are at a higher risk of developing mental ill health.

The ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ are a recommended set of evidence-based public health messages which are aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of the population. These ‘Five Ways’ are: – Connect; Be Active; Take Notice; Keep Learning and Give.

Five Ways to Wellbeing

There was a packed itinerary for our Five Ways to Well-being participants in Bakewell at the end of November!

We learned about the five steps you can take to help improve your mental health and well-being, these are connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give.

We also shared information about the Derbyshire County Council Public Health’s small grants scheme for groups looking to do something that engages people in one or more of the five ways. This programme is county-wide and many of the grant schemes are administered by the local CVS.
