Holistic Opportunities Preventing Exclusion
Small Grants Programme

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, our city has seen an increase in loneliness and isolation, impacting on the health and wellbeing of local people.  HOPE is a partnership between Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT) and Wolverhampton Voluntary and Community Action (WVCA) which has received funding to improve mental health due to isolation or other factors.

As part of our work, we have established a small grants programme which will support activities that will help to reduce isolation and loneliness.  This funding opportunity is for grassroots community groups and small organisations to organise and run social groups and activities that will bring people together.

This for example could be activities focused on particular interests, fitness sessions, mental health workshops or anything else that will bring people together.  We anticipate the need for activities to focus on health and well-being, building resilience, budget management, and social/companionship.
