The North East Essex Hyperlocal Fund is designed to “support the development of asset rich, resilient local Neighbourhoods that improve health and wellbeing for local residents”. Funds can be used to support local projects and to improve residents’ lives.

The purpose of the North East Essex Hyperlocal Fund is to support non-profit groups based in local communities to build resilient local Neighbourhoods that help to improve health and wellbeing for its residents. From reducing the burden of deprivation and inequalities to improving mental health, tackling isolation and loneliness and improving physical health.


We are very thankful to the Essex Community Foundation continuing to support us through funds that they manage on behalf of other charities and businesses.


They provide grants to charities and voluntary organisations in Essex. They do this by working with individuals, families, businesses and charitable trusts, helping them to find and fund local groups that are tackling the issues they care about most.
