*Resilience, in its broadest sense, is the ability to recover from or adapt to threats or disturbances. In the context of the Small Fund, this could be something that brings people together and improves people’s health such as organised walks, exercise sessions in the park, play sessions in the woods, end of lockdown celebrations, front garden displays, food projects. It could also include finding ways to get more people involved in your community so you can share responsibility wider and forge more links with your neighbours.
