Children and Young People Mental Wellbeing Project 2022 – applications open

  • Do you believe arts and culture can increase the confidence, connectedness, and wellbeing of children and young people?
  • Do you have an idea or project to bring the benefits of culture, music, drama, and arts to communities in Reading?

Reading Borough Council has partnered with Artswork to provide grants to organisations and partnerships working with children and young people. The project will run from July to December in schools, community centres, and arts organisations. We are looking for all kinds of cultural experiences – music, theatre, literature, painting, and more. All young people aged 0-25, their families, teachers, and family workers can get involved by registering interest and filling in our short survey.

For schools and organisations interested in applying for the grant we provide:

  • grants of up to £25,000
  • additional funding for Artsmark registration and Arts Awards
  • training and CPD tailored to your needs
  • support from a team of mental health practitioners
  • a suite of evaluation tools to measure your impact

Applications close on 11 July 2022
