Elevate provides a unique opportunity for community organisations to put their collective learning on health inequalities into practice in a supportive and encouraging environment. One of the elements of Elevate is the Community Mentoring & Grants programme. We are delighted to say that the Elevate Community Mentoring & Grants Programme 2021 is now open!
We invite all community and voluntary sector groups to apply for the programme which incorporates:
Group mentoring allows local organisations to make connections, build networks, share information and ideas and support each other in their work. We have partnered with five organisations (one in each Trust area) that demonstrate excellent community development practice and a solid commitment to tackling health inequalities. These are Mid & East Antrim Agewell Partnership, Bolster Community, County Down Rural Community Network, Women’sTec and ARC Healthy Living Centre. These mentors will each support local organisations through a structured Mentorship Programme which offers a range of training, networking and support opportunities as well as a grant so the successful groups can bring their ideas to life, focusing on using community development approaches to reduce health inequalities at a local level.
Download the application form and guidance notes and email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd August 21.
