APPLICATIONS FOR THE FUNDING OUTLINED BELOW ARE NOW CLOSED
Grassroots groups in Brighton and Hove are being encouraged to apply for funding for projects that improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ people.
What funding is available?
Switchboard, in partnership with the Communities Health Inequalities Programme (CHIP), is offering grants of between £50 and £5,000 from a fund worth £20,000.
A total of £5,000 of the fund is ringfenced for Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous People of Colour (QTIBPOC) and people who experience racism, including Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and Jewish people.
Who should apply?
Grassroots groups from Brighton and Hove with annual incomes of up to £150,000 are being encouraged to apply.
Why should my group apply?
Jane Woodhull, Switchboard’s Inclusion and Engagement Project Manager, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity as small grassroots groups and organisations make a massive difference to the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ people throughout Brighton and Hove.
“Often, it’s difficult for these groups to access funding, so we wish to make these grants accessible to them.
“I’m delighted that a quarter of the total funding pot has been reserved for projects that help racially minoritised groups, and I’m very keen to receive applications from organisations that are keen to take these projects forward.”
Sounds good. How can my group apply?
