Five Ways to Wellbeing – small grant scheme

We are pleased to announce that, once again, we will be running 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.

What are the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’?

They are a recommended set of evidence-based public health messages which are aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of the population.

The ‘Five Ways’ are:

  • Connect;
  • Be Active;
  • Take Notice;
  • Keep Learning;
  • Give.

There are guidelines to the small grants scheme which explain each of the Five Ways to Wellbeing more fully and how a project might include or address them, as well as an application form. If you would like a copy of either the application form or guidelines please contact Derbyshire Dales CVS

Applications are welcomed from any voluntary or community group in the Dales, or a Community Interest Company, that might offer something such as activities, support or even a one-off presentation about the Five Ways to Wellbeing.

Groups can apply for a grant of up to £1,000.

The deadline for applications is 31st March 2021
