West Sussex County Council
Micro Fund

Introduced in June 2019, the Micro Fund enables groups to apply directly to the County Council for a grant of no more than £750 towards their total project costs. Similar to the former Small Grants Fund, the process provides an alternative to the crowdfunding approach aimed at attracting community backing.

Groups are encouraged to first enquire before submitting an application in order to learn when their bid may be considered at the earliest available County Local Committee (CLC) meeting. Applications will be formally considered by CLCs three times per year and funding decisions will be taken alongside crowdfunding pitches.

For details of application deadlines and, if necessary, support with the process, please contact me using the email address kathryna.brooks@westsussex.gov.uk.

Get help with savings if you’re on a low income
Help to Save

How it works

Help to Save is a type of savings account. It allows certain people entitled to Working Tax Credit or receiving Universal Credit to get a bonus of 50p for every £1 they save over 4 years.
Help to Save is backed by the government so all savings in the scheme are secure.

How payments work

You can save between £1 and £50 each calendar month. You do not have to pay money in every month.

You can pay money into your Help to Save account by debit card, standing order or bank transfer.

You can pay in as many times as you like, but the most you can pay in each calendar month is £50. For example, if you have saved £50 by 8 January you will not be able to pay in again until 1 February.

You can only withdraw money from your Help to Save account to your bank account.

Sport in Mind
An independent Mental Health Charity

Sport in Mind ® is an independent mental health charity (unaffiliated to Mind) founded in Berkshire in 2010 with a simple mission:

“To improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems through sport and physical activity”

We are the UK’s leading mental health sports charity and deliver physical activity projects in partnership with the NHS in order to promote mental wellbeing, improve physical health, combat social isolation and empower people to move their lives forward in a positive direction.

Our services have supported over 10,000 people experiencing mental health problems and are co-designed by people with personal experience of mental health problems and healthcare professionals.

Our work is delivered to support the recovery of people with mental health problems in the community and also inpatient care as we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to take part in sport and physical activity irrespective of how unwell they are.

Sport in Mind is passionate about raising awareness of mental health problems and the benefits of being physically active. There are still many common misconceptions about mental illness in society today and we use the power of sport to bring people together to talk about mental health and change attitudes.
