Trustee Positions x 2 – The Livewell Foundation

Salary – N/A

Location – Plymouth, Devon

The Livewell Foundation (registered charity no. 1172401)

The Livewell Foundation is a charitable initiative which exists to support projects and proposals that will have a transformational effect on communities living in Plymouth and South West Devon.  It provides funding from £500 to £10,000 for projects that will have a positive and enduring impact on people, whether that’s by reducing social isolation, improving health and wellbeing, or helping to prevent ill-health. 

The Foundation is currently interested in supporting:

  • Vulnerable or disadvantaged adults with physical or mental health needs
  • Children and young people

The Livewell Foundation was founded by Livewell Southwest CIC and registered with the Charity Commission in 2017.  Livewell Southwest CIC is an independent social enterprise providing integrated health and social care services for people across Plymouth and South West Devon.  The Livewell Foundation was set up to administer the charitable funds to support the services run by Livewell Southwest CIC and to enable Livewell Southwest CIC to fulfil its community interest purpose by transferring a portion of its profits into the Foundation on an annual basis.  In addition, funds are received from Livewell Southwest CIC employees through  fundraising events; donations and legacies are often given by patients in appreciation of the care they received. 

It is an exciting time to join the Livewell Foundation as we are about to embark on a New Year of fundraising and grant giving.
