Wellbeing Subgroup

The Wellbeing Subgroup is a group of local residents or members of community groups of St George who have volunteered to review grant applications to the St George Wellbeing Fund.  We ask questions about the applications, sometimes do our own research into the application and assess how closely the application meets the priorities for St George.

This is the sheet we use for our assessment: grant appraisal form.

Our champion, Susan, writes a summary of the applications, giving the current amount of funding left for the year and the amount that would be left if our recommendations were followed.  This, with our assessments are published in the agenda notes for the next meeting of the St George Neighbourhood Partnership.  At that meeting the four councillors for St George East and West take a decision on whether Wellbeing funding should be granted.  These four councillors are the Neighbourhood Committee.

Here is an example of a summary:  Summary of grants applied for September 2011.

For the funding round closing 27th October, 2014 the Wellbeing sub-group will also look at applications for Green Capital grants.  The decision on these grant will be taken at the December meeting of the St George Neighbourhood Partnership by all members of the partnership.

Our members are:

  • Susan Acton-Campbell  – champion of the Wellbeing Subgroup,  member of the St George Neighbourhood Partnership, resident of St George Troopers Hill.
  • Philip Bird – member of the St George Neighbourhood Partnership, resident of St George West
