Melanie May | 30 June 2016 | News

National charity change, grow, live (CGL) is inviting Birmingham charities and not-for-profit groups to apply for a share of £100,000 in funding grants available to support work in the community to help people aged 18 or over experiencing difficulties with substance misuse, including their families and carers.
The charity is offering grants of up to £2,500 to organisations in Birmingham that run projects or activities that benefit the community, or which increase physical activity and positive mental wellbeing of clients in the city.
Grants must be spent within 12 months of the funds being allocated, and are part of the charity’s commitment to working collaboratively with like-minded organisations across the not-for-profit sector that can help deliver its vision of lasting behavioural change, and lives lived free from drug and alcohol misuse.
Applications will be considered by a change, grow, live panel led by service users and supported by senior staff. Priority will be given to organisations whose proposals meet the following objectives:
–          Reductions in reoffending
–          Improved housing
–          Improved parenting
–          Increased levels of employment
–          Effective child safeguarding
–          Improvements in physical and mental health
Applications are via the charity’s website: www.changegrowlive.org/content/birmingham-charities-and-community-groups-invited-apply-grants
Kirsty Mason, business and partnership manager at change, grow, live, said:

“Our aim is to make a positive impact on people and communities directly affected by drug and alcohol misuse. From supporting research and development, to building capacity and enabling new activities, we hope these grants will support our friends and partners to make a real difference.”
