Covering the Calderdale wards of Elland, and Greetland & Stainland.

What is the fund for?

The fund is to prevent and tackle loneliness and in Elland we are specifically looking to fund the following

  • Activities that address barriers to participation
  • Health or wellbeing service in the community
  • Social activities for younger adults
  • Activities that increase volunteering
  • Promotion and publicity of local groups and activities

Where has the money come from?

The Elland 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 Elland, 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.
