Regional Small Grants March 2019 Winners

The Children’s Foundation Regional Small Grants programme supports community projects that benefit children and young people in the North East area, in line with our aims and objectives. Grants awarded are up to a maximum of £1,000.

Our recent award winners:

Our March 2019 Regional Small Grants was a Mental Health round which aimed to recognise the achievements of groups who are working to improve understanding, awareness, service provision and the general mental health of our children.

Applications were welcomed for projects that were particularly creative, innovative and that connected well with mental health. We also encouraged applications that would benefit young people and the broader community by giving young people the opportunity to develop skills they can use throughout their lives, such as leadership and decision making skills, working collaboratively and developing creative ideas.

This Regional Small Grants round recognised excellence and/or innovation in programmes, projects or initiatives that have focused their efforts within promotion of mental wellbeing or early intervention to prevent mental ill-health.



Live Well North East were awarded £1,000 for their Resilience Bootcamp.

The project will help Year 7 pupils transition into secondary school. This period can be an overwhelming time; the project aims to tackle this head on and provide early intervention by supporting young people with their physical and emotional wellbeing, teaching them vital skills.

Resilience Bootcamp offers a mixture of physical exercise and group based workshops exploring emotional health and wellbeing, supporting young people to learn about themselves, their emotions and learn techniques and strategies on how to deal with those emotions, build confidence, resilience and positive self esteem. The project even made the news!
