Let’s Build Health Grants are available to help create opportunities and develop local activity that improves health and wellbeing. The grants are available in the following People Keeping Well (PKW) Community Partnership areas: Burngreave, Chapelgreen, Firth Park/Shiregreen, Southey Owlerton.
This round we received some fantastic applications and funded a total of 17 local voluntary and community organisations delivering a range of projects! Meet Autism Hope:
"Thanks to the funding from SOAR, our group will now be able to meet every week. We are a support group not only for the parents and carers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder but we now have regular children that attend. These are children that are either being home schooled or are at home due to not being able to access mainstream education and are awaiting specialist provision.
It is wonderful that we can offer a safe and welcoming space so that parents feel comfortable to bring their children and not be judged. The children are also forming friendships together which is so important when not going to school and seeing friends there."
