Octavia launches its 'Better Lives Community Fund 2018-2019'
Octavia has today (September 25) announced the launch of its ‘Better Lives Community Fund 2018/19’, which will provide grants up to £5,000 to fund charities tackling loneliness and social isolation in the boroughs of Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC).
The fund will support projects that help build social connections for people at risk of social isolation and loneliness. Charities and voluntary groups working with residents in Westminster and RBKC, that meet the criteria for the funding, are invited to apply.
Our aim is to award grants to a wide range of organisations and projects. Our expectation is that we will award a mix of smaller and larger grants.
There is one grant fund for distribution in the 2018/19 financial year; this will be distributed in either one round, or two rounds, dependent upon the number of eligible applications received.
Our aim is to tackle the effects of loneliness through these grants and help build social connections for those who are most in need.
