Impact Funding Partners is delighted to be managing the Winter Social Wellbeing Fund (Glasgow) on behalf of Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership (GHSCP).

GHSCP has made funding available to local organisations, to enable them to support people who may be isolated over the Winter period.  The fund is available to organisations currently supporting Glasgow City residents aged 16 and over. 

Priority will be given to organisations working with individuals most at risk of social isolation and loneliness as well as those most impacted by coronavirus. For example, women, vulnerable young people (16+), older people, carers, minority ethnic people, disabled people, homeless people, lone parents, adults with additional support needs and people with long term health conditions.

Eligible activities must take place between 1st December 2021 and 31st March 2022. The activities funded must be in addition to what you are already delivering, enabling you to reach and support more individuals at risk from social isolation over this period.

It is important that you read the Frequently Asked Questions before applying, as this document contains information on the fund criteria, eligible and ineligible costs as well as other details relevant to your funding application.

Timescales for Fund

  • The Fund opens on Friday 1st October 2021
  • The Fund closes on Friday 5th November 2021. You can submit an application up to 23.59pm, but staff support will not be available after 5pm.
  • Decisions are expected to be made by mid to end November 2021
  • Eligible activities must take place between 1st December 2021 and 31st March 2022

Available Grants

GHSCP are keen that as many people as possible at risk from isolation benefit from this funding. Organisations are encouraged to only apply for the amount of funding they will require for their activities, preventing any underspends. This will enable the available funds to be distributed more widely across Glasgow City.

You will be asked to provide a short budget breakdown based on what you are applying for.

  • There is no minimum amount available that you can apply for
  • The maximum amount available is £3000

Some of the people who attend your services may require you to provide additional support to make your proposed activities accessible. If you think you would require additional funding to ensure your activities are fully accessibile, please contact the team before submitting your application.
