These grants may be particularly suitable for churches who run activities such as lunch clubs, coffee monrings, craft afternoons - and links very well with our own DCRF Communitiy Activities Project of linking up our activities with those who may benefit from thm through "social prescribers" and "community connectors".

A further grant scheme for larger projects called "Doing What Matters" will be ready in May
