Seed grants are intended to help both those wishing to start new local projects, or to support current projects just gaining momentum.  As they are intended to support the work of those involved in the community, a key requirement for the receipt of a grant is that the level of funding must be matched by the community group, organisation or individual either in cash or in kind.

Seed grants may be used in a variety of ways, for example (but not limited to):

  •    To support a local organisation or group running a community event aimed at increasing awareness and knowledge about ‘healthy’ ways of coping with loss and grief.
  • To support individual(s) and groups seeking practical ways of providing social, emotional and practical support to those living with life limiting illness, facing loss or experiencing bereavement. 
  • To support a youth project or school assisting young people to explore what death, dying, loss and care means to them through the medium of art, photography or story-telling. 
  • To support the development of a community garden or reflective space around illness, death, dying, loss and care.
  • To support a local library service in the development of a bereavement information ‘resource’ for use by the local community.
