Wellbeing grants

In 2022/2023 The Tudor Trust are offering Wellbeing grants of £2,000 to all organisations with new grant commitments. By supporting the wellbeing of people within the organisations we fund, we hope to contribute to the overall health and resilience of their organisations, and help to deliver their charitable purpose more effectively.

This approach builds on Wellbeing grants offered to our grant holders in 2020, in response to what we were hearing from organisations and communities during the COVID pandemic. In the feedback survey groups told us that the grants made a significant contribution to staff and volunteer wellbeing through a wide range of activities, leaving a longer-term legacy. However, they also reminded us that workforce wellbeing needs continuous support. We are therefore putting into practice what we learnt in our 2022/2023 wellbeing grants offer.

What can the grants be spent on?

The grant is restricted for the use of staff, volunteer and trustee wellbeing, however, we trust you to use it in a way that works for you. With the first Wellbeing grants Tudor gave in 2020 most groups consulted their teams and came up with both practical and creative ways of supporting wellbeing, including:

  • Events and team activities: team trips, meals out, away days
  • Training and development: courses, workshops, one-to-one support related to wellbeing. For example, mental health first aid, mindfulness, counselling, trauma-informed approaches and conflict management.
  • Support for individuals: tailored, individual wellbeing support such as counselling, wellbeing packages, relaxation opportunities such as yoga or mindfulness sessions.
  • Improving the work environment: furnishings and facility updates, such as plants, lumbar support and water filters.
  • Subscriptions: wellness apps etc.

Frequently asked questions

How and when can I claim the grant?

In 2022/2023 we are offering a £2,000 wellbeing grant alongside all new grant commitments. You should have information about this in your grant approval letter. If you have any questions, please get in touch with your grants manager.

Is there anything we can’t spend the grant on?

When we made a grant to you we did so with the intention of helping you to deliver a charitable purpose. As one of our current grant holders, we trust you to come up with appropriate and creative ways of providing support to your staff, volunteers and trustees. By supporting the wellbeing of people within the organisations we fund, we hope to contribute to the overall health and resilience of your organisation, and help you to deliver that charitable purpose more effectively.

When does the funding have to be spent by?

The Wellbeing grant can be spent anytime within the length of your main grant.

What reporting is there?

We ask that you add a paragraph with a brief update into your annual reporting. This is a new approach for Tudor, which we are trialling in 2022/2023, so we may also get in touch early in 2023 to invite you to take part in an optional session with other grant-holders to discuss how you have or plan to spend the grant, and if it has supported your team’s wellbeing.
