The Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) is calling for applications from organisations that want to offer a safe space and activities for local people to meet and be supported.


Over £877,000 has been donated to local organisations wanting to create a better environment for local people since the scheme began in 2020.


Kelly Spence, Mental Health Co-ordinator at PCP, said: “I am excited to announce that grants of £500 to £7,500 are available to community organisations and groups in County Durham from the Happiness Hubs grant scheme.


“We are particularly keen to hear from organisations that wish to develop Happiness Hubs facilitated during the evening and over the weekend that aim to provide safe spaces so local people can meet, make friends, talk and feel supported.


“The ultimate goal is to help people to live happier, healthier lives, focusing on mental health, with the aim to promote mental wellbeing and personal resilience.”


Organisations must run a project/service that lasts between a minimum of 12 to 18 months to qualify for a grant.


The Happiness Hubs is brought to you by the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board and North East charity, PCP.
