Our current stream of funding – the Marni Robertson Fund (see below) – has now all been allocated and over 50 different charitable organisations were able to benefit.
It is now our intention to seek and secure further funding and we hope to have this agreed by the end of 2017 or early 2018.
If you are interested in your organisation benefitting from funding to enable Laughter For Health to deliver funded laughter workshops and laughter training, you can get in touch here and provide us with the following information:
We believe the more organisations we get on board to join us, the stronger our case for funding will be; we are stronger together!
For almost 2.5 years, Laughter For Health was incredibly proud to be able to offer funding for registered charities through the Marni Robertson Fund. Unfortunately, this funding has now all been allocated and over 50 different charitable organisations were able to benefit.
Charities were able to apply for funding to cover the cost of Laughter For Health running Laughter Workshops – or shorter laughter sessions – for their staff, volunteers and/or for their service users.
Charities could also apply for funding to cover the cost of Laughter For Health training members of charity staff or their volunteers in order to run regular laughter events for their staff and/or for their clients and service users, i.e. a laughter club, within the charity and as part of its regular and ongoing services. An initial Laughter Workshop delivered within the organisation (funded) would identify those with the passion, energy and commitment to apply for doing the funded Laughter Yoga Leader Training and make an official application with support from their Manager.
Laughter For Health runs regular Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training weekends in Edinburgh – see here – and we are seeking further funding to continue the funded work.
Training charity staff or volunteers is a far more cost effective way to deliver regular laughter sessions in-house – and with funding available, this is an exciting and amazing opportunity to help spread health and happiness within an organisation with no worries about affordability!
