Healthier Hackney Fund grants programme

Hackney Council is pleased to launch the third year of the Healthier Hackney Grant Fund for 2017/18. The funding available is for projects and services that will help the council achieve its public health ambitions, to increase healthy life expectancy, and to reduce inequality between different communities. The Council is committed to ensuring that the grant investment continues to increase opportunities for Hackney residents and that the investment delivers services which make a difference to people’s lives. The fund is worth a total £250,000 in 2017/18.

Whilst we expect to receive far more applications than we can fund, we will allocate the full amount only if the applications demonstrate that they can achieve the aims sought from this funding. Grants available in 2017/18 The following grants are available through the Healthier Hackney Fund.

Healthy Activities (up to £30,000) Projects to run practical activities that will achieve one of the following aims:

  • Addressing the wider causes of obesity
  • Building community resilience to key health risks

Healthy Ideas (up to £12,000 to develop and pilot a new concept) Projects that will test new approaches to tackling entrenched problems, relating to:

  • Healthy Literacy

Healthy Neighbourhoods (£1,000 grant) A kickstart grant for neighbourhood projects that will get residents helping each other to be healthy. These can target any aspect of health or wellbeing, but must contribute to reducing inequality.
