Funding to Target Health Inequalities
Funding to Target Health Inequalities (Staffordshire, Shropshire, Stoke-on-Trent, Telford and Wrekin)
HealthFair which is part of the Health Lottery’s Active Communities programme has announced that the closing date for applications is the 12th April 2017.
HealthFair provides grant funding of between £5,000 and £25,000 per year for projects designed and led by local people which target areas most affected by health inequalities in Staffordshire, Shropshire, Stoke-on-Trent, Telford and Wrekin. To be eligible to apply, organisations must be not for profit with an income of less than £350,000 per year. Projects will be small and local and could cover a few streets, a housing estate or a small village. They will last for between twelve months and two years and will make neighbourhoods better places to grow, live, work and age.
Previous projects supported include:
The Blurton Community Centre which received a grant of £10,337 for a new two-year project that will provide a weekly exercise session bringing together non-disabled and disabled people from Blurton in Stoke-on-Trent.
Families in Telford which received a grant of £29,210 for a new two-year project that will provide a weekly support group for pregnant women and mothers and their families.
