Funding is available for grassroots, neighbourhood-based community projects that build happy, strong, resilient communities across the UK.

Small, not-for-profit businesses can apply for funding to set up new groups and activities that improve:

  • mental health and wellbeing
  • inclusion
  • learning and skills development

To be successful, applicants will need to indicate how the activity/group can become self-sustainable or be able to attract funding from other sources for the longer term.

The funding is made available through Laughology’s Happiness Fund, which will make one award of £5,000 twice a year, allowing up to two different projects per year to be supported.

The next funding round will open on the 29th January 2024 and close on the 29th February 2024.
