BeGambleAware’s Aftercare Funding Programme awards grants of up to £350,000 to support projects in England, Wales and Scotland that provide long-term recovery and rebuild from gambling harm, and enable people to live happy and healthy lives.
The core long-term outcome is improved recovery capital. ‘Recovery capital’ is defined as the internal and external assets needed to initiate and sustain recovery – to essentially recover a life that has meaning for the individual. Recovery capital looks different for everyone, but may include a combination of some core intermediate outcomes:
- Improved mental health and wellbeing
- Improved self-image (including, but not limited to, reducing stigma)
- Increased confidence and self-believe in ability to accomplish goals (self-efficacy)
- Increased knowledge about relevant supports available for those who have experienced gambling harms (directly or as affected by others) and among their support networks
- Increased positive personal networks of support (including communities of understanding)
- Increased practical skills, including, but not limited to, financial and employability skills
The Programme has three specific priority areas (it is not compulsory to meet one of these):
- Projects which aim to reach those who experience the greatest inequalities or people from disadvantaged communities
- Projects delivered in partnership, particularly where the partnership involves a gambling specialist organisation and (an)other organisations with different specialisms
- Projects which are led by people with lived experience of gambling harms
Grants are available in two levels:
Level 1: funding of up to £150,000 for smaller or newer organisations or for those looking to test an approach. These projects should be between 18-36 months long.
Level 2: funding of up to £350,000 for larger organisations that are already established and want to grow or develop their work further. These projects are expected to be between 24-36 months, with longer projects preferred.
Deadline: Monday 15 August 2022, 12 noon
