The Social Opportunity Fund is aimed at helping adults with care and support needs within Buckinghamshire. Funding is provided as a maximum one year, one off grant and can be used for operating and/or capital expenditure to include the set-up, operation and promotion of activities.
The objectives of the Scheme are:
- To provide seed funding for new and sustainable projects that will help reduce social isolation amongst people in Buckinghamshire with moderate to substantial support needs, including people with learning disabilities, people with mental health concerns or older people with limited social networks.
- To fund activities which help individuals become or stay active in their community, help individuals make and keep friendships, promote and develop new member-led community groups and raise awareness of universal community services to these individuals.
