The Recovery Grants 2023/24 Application Window is now open!
Grants will be available to organisations and groups within Derbyshire which support people to achieve and sustain recovery from drug or alcohol dependence.
You will be applying for a single, non- recurring grant up to a maximum of £40,000 including VAT and all other costs.
Recovery is about individuals gaining and maintaining control of their lives, improving their physical and mental wellbeing, having purpose in life and being able to fulfil their potential.
The aim of the grant, which is funded through Derbyshire County Council’s Public Health Department, is to financially support organisations over a period of 12 months, who can provide meaningful activity and positively increase social connects amongst people in or working towards recovery.
This could be done in several ways, and we welcome innovative ideas for providing this support to:
• Improve physical and mental health and wellbeing
• Provide purposeful activity, including education, skills training, volunteering, and employment
• Help develop social networks
• Connect people in recovery
• Develop financial capability
• Develop positive thinking and effective decision making
• Build confidence and self-esteem
You will also have to demonstrate how your proposal offers good value for money.
We want to encourage small, local organisations who can provide recovery support to bid for the funds. We have therefore imposed eligibility caps of £1 million on the annual income of the organisations who are able to bid for the grant.
