Would you like to set up a new activity or group? Would you like the support of ourselves and up to £500 in grant funding to help you do so? Age UK Sheffield provide the South West of Sheffield People Keeping Well Partnership, which means that we are able to support new groups and activities to get off the ground!
Whether you already have a small group or you have a brand new idea for a regular group or activity, this is the perfect opportunity for you to really establish your group and try something new. If successful, you’ll be able to access up to £500 in funding per activity.
It could be something active such as table tennis, a walking group or chess game. Or, it could be a group for people to share and enjoy a similar interests, just like the sporting chatter group that was set up in Dore and Totley thanks to this very same community grant fund. The sporting chatter group is much loved and very successful with members organising events from sporting film night to visits to football stadiums and quizzes.
Whether it's a knit and natter group, a volunteering group or a quiz group, all ideas are welcome and all applications are considered. After all, the more activities and groups that are available in our community for people to get involved in, the better!
