1. Health and Wellbeing Service

2. Homework Clubs

Communities First ended in March 2018 and a small amount of funding has been made available this year through the Legacy Fund to pilot some innovative approaches to building resilient communities. Considerable stakeholder and community consultation has been undertaken during 2017/18 to help understand what would be the priorities for development after the closure of the programme.

Cardiff Council is inviting proposals from partners for two individual grants to deliver 2 specific areas of work as pilot projects. The Welsh Government Legacy Fund would fund these pilots during 2018/19 with an option to extend by 1 year (subject to the success of the pilots and continued Welsh Government funding).

The grant type and amounts available are set out below:

1. Up to £100,000 is available during 2018/19 for a Health and Wellbeing Service with the opportunity to extend in 2019/20

2. Up to £20,000 is available during 2018/19 for the Homework Clubs with the opportunity to extend in 2019/20

The Council has a corporate commitment to support vulnerable people and seeks to empower them to live as safely and independently as possible within the community.

Therefore, we are looking to establish services that provide a holistic model of support within the city that complements the new approach to building resilient communities and the development of the Wellbeing Hubs.

Service elements to be delivered for both the health and wellbeing and homework club pilots will include the provision of accessible community-based support using a strengths based approach. Services developed should not duplicate any existing provision, and should align and add value to existing programmes and services.
