The Totnes Wellbeing Fund (TWF) aims to support individuals and community groups in Totnes and adjacent parishes, helping them to turn great ideas to boost wellbeing into reality. Because a small change can make a big difference, we’re keen to support initiatives where a little input from us could really enhance personal, community and environmental wellbeing.
** Totnes Wellbeing Fund Applications: If you’d like to apply, please read our Application Pack for more details, and return a completed Application Form (Word document) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 18th December 2020.
Please be reassured that we continue to honour our current round of the TWF, and are being flexible with existing grants. Our panelists have advised us that applicants for this round should say how their activities can be carried out while maintaining physical distancing rules, so as to support wellbeing in Totnes during the pandemic.**
We offer seed grants between £100 and £500 in two rounds each year – in June and December.
We target – with very few exceptions –new initiatives, by groups or individuals, which preferably have not yet received other external funding, and where a small, timely grant will unleash significant positive impact.
Who can apply to the Totnes Wellbeing Fund?
We will accept applications from community groups (including unincorporated associations and social enterprises) and individuals with a turnover of £4,000 or less, who need support for non-profit-making projects. We will not consider applications from limited companies.
