Good Life Fund

The Good Life Fund offers grants of up to £500 to people in our local community to help set up groups that connect people, such as book clubs, craft classes, or activities that encourage people to learn new skills.

The fund was developed with stakeholders, including those with lived experience of mental health. Grants will be distributed to local people for activities that support the Five Ways to Wellbeing, which are: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.

Small grants can be a catalyst for encouraging people to take the first steps to become engaged in their communities, inspiring them to develop their ideas for groups and activities. We hope to approve as many small grants as possible, and applications are open to all communities in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
