Projects we fund
Through our funding programmes we support projects in areas of England, Scotland and Wales experiencing the highest levels of disadvantage which are most affected by health inequalities. The projects we fund are led by communities themselves to improve health and wellbeing in their neighbourhoods.
The Castle & Beyond - Our Voice, Our Community
ASD Family Help, which is funded through the Trust’s Active Communities programme, is supporting people with autism, learning disabilities and learning difficulties to build social connections and gain individual and collective control.
Stories direct from the people involved in projects we fund. Read what they have to say about why their project was needed and the difference it is making in addressing health inequalities locally.
Running a project
Our support for funded partners includes training, resources and the opportunity to join our networks. Our programme of capacity building support is based on what our funded partners tell us they need.
Boosting skills is important but the main way we support people into work is by boosting their confidence. When you volunteer with your peers, you get the opportunity to work in a group and learn from each other which boosts your morale and you can then take this confidence into an interview or a workplace and show you’re ready for the job.
