General Grants

Social & Emotional Well-Being Needs Grants

The Town Council provides funding to outside bodies as part of the Town Council’s commitment to improving public well-being, as exemplified in its support for creating a dementia-friendly community.

The grant funding is to help support the social and emotional well-being needs within Aylesbury Town and among its diverse communities.

The criteria excludes projects working solely to address physical health needs, although “social and/or emotional” probably well-being interventions may have measurable secondary physical health benefits.
