DEMENTIA AWARE COMMUNITY LED GRANTS

Grants of between £250 - £1,000 are available for change makers, movers and shakers, Voluntary and Community Groups, Third Sector Organisations and social enterprises in Denbighshire to initiate community led activity to raise awareness about dementia in their local communities. Through these awareness raising activities we anticipate that:  

 

  • The wider population understands the challenges faced by people living with dementia and are aware of the actions they can take to support them.

  • People are aware of the early signs of dementia; the importance of a timely diagnosis; and know where to go to get help

  • Individuals will understand the steps they can take to reduce their risk,

 

Grants are available for events, activities, and training sessions, which can raise awareness about dementia in communities, and encourage people to turn awareness into action and improvement in their communities.

 

The Dementia Aware Community Led Grant Programme Criteria aims to encourage community led innovation and to inspire a network of change makers to come together and turn awareness into action in their communities across the county.

 

The current round of funding is now closed. We hope to open up a second round later in the year.

BECOME A SUPPORTER

Hello again … … today we have a small favour to ask. Volunteers, voluntary and community action and the third sector are at the heart of building more sustainable and resilient communities and we need them more than ever.

 

DVSC receives core funding from the Welsh Government but we need to raise more money so that we can continue to provide excellent sector support - whether you're a volunteer,  voluntary and community group or a third sector organisation.

 

We can provide a wealth of information and resources and we want to keep our services as accessible as we can, and to reach as many groups as we can.  So we think it’s fair to ask people who visit us often for their help - if they feel able to give it.

 

Our Sector Support service is resource intensive, but we are investing in it because we believe providing support to volunteers, voluntary and community groups, charities, social enterprises and community interest companies - has to be at the heart of what we do. If you like what we are about, and you want to help support it, our future would be much more secure.
