The To Absent Friends Festival takes place in November
A small grants fund has been set up to support organisations to put on remembrance events as part of this year's To Absent Friends festival. (1-7 November 2021.)
Two types of small grants (of up to £250) are available:
Community grants: These are for organisations and communities who want to plan private remembrance events at which their community can come together (online, outside or in small gatherings) to share memories, stories and solace.
Public grants: These are for organisations who want to organise an interactive public event (online, outside or in a public space) such as a concert, exhibition or installation, freely open to members of the public.
Applications are encouraged from charities, community groups, care homes, NHS organisations, small businesses, prisons, arts organisations, schools, education institutions and more.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 31 August.
The grants are being administered by Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief. More information, including an application form, is available online.
