Impact Funding Partners - Wellbeing for Longer in Glasgow Fund


VAF are developing and managing this fund on behalf of Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership (GHSCP). The aim of this fund is to support adults most at risk of social isolation and loneliness in line with Scottish Government Strategy.

Applications should clearly demonstrate that they will work with people most at risk because of at least one of the following: personal characteristics such as disability and age or other barriers such as language and money; life transitions including young people leaving home, bereavement, becoming a parent and retirement; health including conditions which may limit ability to leave the house or interact with others.

Applications should address health inequalities and improve health and improve social inclusion, enabling residents who are isolated to be more connected.

Applications are expected to focus on activities which will either reduce stigma, encourage kindness, tackle impact of poverty, address inequality, promote and improve health and wellbeing, support volunteering and improve infrastructure.

Who can apply

This is an open and competitive fund for third sector organisations (voluntary organisation or community group) whose Board of Trustees or Management Committee are predominantly volunteers.

Organisations do not need to be registered charities, although their constitution/set of rules should make clear that funds will only be spent on purposes established in the constitution, and not distributed amongst members.

Organisations should have a Glasgow base and have an annual income of below £250,000 in their last financial year, unless they are applying to the fund to support a citywide project in which case there is no income threshold.

When to apply

Currently closed. Usually open annually in November to December each year.
