In the age of COVID, we’ve never been more aware of the crucial role of health and wellbeing in our individual lives and in the strength of our communities. And yet we also know that this is a uniquely challenging time for the social sector, with many organisations facing a simultaneous decline in income and increase in need.

This online event will introduce the new Bristol City Funds Health and Wellbeing Grant Programme. The programme will support voluntary, community, charity and social enterprise organisations based and working in Bristol to deliver health and wellbeing activities or to transform and strengthen the organisations themselves.

Speakers will include:

Ronnie Brown – Interim Chief Exec of Quartet Community Foundation, which manages the grant programme for City Funds

Rachel de Garang – BME Engagement Worker at The Care Forum, which is supporting people with direct experience to be part of the grant decision making process

David Barclay – Partner at the Good Faith Partnership, which is providing support for potential applicants

This is part of #BristolResilience week. From 8 to 16 October the city will host a series of events on the theme of resilience and recovery from COVID-19. Topics to be covered include: the role of property and construction in recovery; how businesses can prepare for winter and Brexit; the role for communities; and resilience to climate change in the next five years. It will culminate in the launch of the first version of the economic recovery plan for the city. Events will be brought together in partnership with Festival of Ideas, Bristol Housing Festival, Bristol One City and Business West.
