The latest round of Public Health 5 Ways to Wellbeing and Small Grants Scheme for High Peak is now live and open for applications.  

This year, the two funds have been combined to enable a quicker and more efficient application process with a change in focus.


After a difficult 12 months, we want to help groups and organisations that are looking to return to delivering their services or support after lockdown. Therefore, applicants will be prioritised if they can demonstrate any of the following:

  • How the funding will help the organisation restart their service
  • How the funding will help people within the High Peak recover from the challenges caused by the Pandemic
  • How the funding will help support the organisation to recover from the impact of the pandemic

In addition, The Five Ways to Wellbeing are a set of national evidence-based actions (developed by the New Economics Foundation) which promote people’s wellbeing. They are Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.  These activities are simple things individuals can do in their everyday lives which have been proven to help improve people’s mental wellbeing. Applications will also be prioritised if your group / organisation looks to support people at higher risk of mental ill health and can meet any or all of these 5 Ways to Wellbeing.

How much can you apply for?

Up to £1000.   


The application process is open until all funds are spent. The panel will aim to meet on a fortnightly basis to make decisions on applications and therefore you are encouraged to get your applications in as soon as possible.

Who can apply?

Any voluntary/community groups or local people within the High Peak area who come together to support the health and wellbeing of their community are eligible to apply for funding.

We want to hear from people who’d like to make a difference to their community.    

The grant scheme will be administered by High Peak CVS.

Applications should be returned to: Donna Wren at High Peak CVS, using email: donna@highpeakcvs.org.uk
