Living Well With COVID-19 Grants

In Newham, as in the rest of England, we are moving into a new phase of our response to COVID-19.  We are now doing all we can to live well with COVID-19. This means

  • Taking steps to be as healthy and well as possible, including mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Doing what is reasonable not to get or spread the virus
  • Having the best protection from severe illness by having the COVID-19 vaccines

The Living Well with COVID-19 Community Health Grant and Living Well with COVID-19 Community Health Grant Young People is a chance to develop ideas that help children and young people from young children through to 25 years old to live well with COVID across these three areas. This includes being emotionally and mentally well.

Grants of up to £10,000 were available for activities through Dec 2022.

£80,000 total was available for the general grant and £50,000 total for the young people’s grant.

Grant applications are now closed and grants have been awarded. Learning will be shared from this work after December 2022.
