New Capacity Growth Grants for Community Link Working launched

Argyll & Bute HSCP have launched Capacity Growth Grants to fund Third Sector organisations who currently deliver services/support to adults over the age of 18 living in Argyll and Bute, to increase their capacity to be in a position to support the future Community Link Worker (CLW) service.

A CLW works with an individual to identify underlying causes and stressors in their life, which are having a negative impact on their health. The aim is to support people in taking control over their own health and wellbeing, and includes referring them to community services which can support them in doing so.

A healthy and vibrant Third Sector plays a vital role in supporting CLW objectives. Argyll and Bute HSCP are looking to award Capacity Growth Grants to Third Sector partners across Argyll and Bute to build capacity for supporting CLW by developing sustainable services which CLW are able to refer individuals into.

Capacity growth activities are those which build an organisation’s resources to deliver the range, volume and quality of services required for successful CLW, and the potential to extend the reach or variety of these services. These will be services which also benefit the wider community in line with CLW outcomes.
