Covering the Calderdale wards of Brighouse and Rastrick

What is the fund for?

The fund is to prevent and tackle loneliness and in Brighouse and Rastrick we are specifically looking to fund the following:

  • Activities that engage men
  • Development of activities with the Space@ Field Lane
  • Activities centered on general health and wellbeing
  • Increasing knowledge about activities in the area
  • Dementia Friendly activities and initiatives

Where has the money come from?

The Brighouse and Rastrick Fund includes funding from Community Foundation for Calderdale and Staying Well. Read more about the fund here.

How much can I apply for?

We haven’t set a limit on what you can apply for but that’s not say it’s a bottomless pot!

If you’ve got an idea for something that meets our priorities for Brighouse or Rastrick give us call to discuss. Even if we’re not able to fund all your project we might be able to help in other ways.
