Raising Hope Dementia Fund

Do you have an idea to help people with dementia, or their families and carers?

We are inviting applications to our Raising Hope Dementia Fund and would like to hear from you.

Raising Hope is offering funding to organisations of up to £4,000. This is to support community projects in the Newport area that will help people with dementia, or their families and carers, improve their quality of life.

Any not-for-profit organisation can apply, and the minimum age for applicants is 12 years old (with adult guidance to the age of 18).

You can be based outside Newport, but all of your project must be delivered in the Newport City Council area.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 16 January 2024.

Who is funded will be decided by a public vote at an event in March 2024.

To request an application form please email us at [email protected] or phone 01633 987677. 

Funding for Raising Hope has been provided by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. 

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion of funding for local investment by March 2025.

The Fund aims to improve pride in place and increase life chances across the UK investing in communities and place, supporting local business, and people and skills.
