Community grants

5 ways to wellbeing grants

Ealing public health, equalities and engagement team have secured a total of £8,000 to co-produce with local communities and voluntary community groups culturally competent 5 ways to wellbeing campaign material and resources for communities that are most at risk of poor mental wellbeing. This project will enable local grassroots communities and groups to create 5 ways to wellbeing resources that reflect and respect the diverse backgrounds, beliefs and traditions that can be found in our Ealing communities.

The aims of the 5 ways to wellbeing project are:

  1. To collaborate with our existing connections in the community and VCS sector in creating a suite of co-produced culturally competent 5 ways to wellbeing campaign resources for Ealing residents.
  2. The resources will be used by local community members to promote “wider conversations on mental health and suicide prevention” with members of their community to reduce the stigma and embarrassment associated with poor mental well-being and promote healthy conversations.
  3. To gain a further understanding of the complexities faced by communities and groups and barriers to accessing services and support needed.

We are looking for voluntary organisations to co-produce a suite of culturally competent 5 ways to wellbeing campaign resources which should include the following:

  • the development of a suite of resources that embrace the sensitive differences in customs, values, and perspectives among individuals from various cultural background.  via engagement through up to at least two workshops that encourage participation and feedback from local communities
  • engagement with vulnerable groups and communities including some of our underserved populations
  • an opportunity for open discussions with underserved communities to understand how we can ensure that we adopt culturally sensitive and co-production
