Hands up for a Healthier Hull – NEW funding available for community groups

Voluntary and community groups with great ideas to help make the city a healthier place can now bid for up to £5,000 funding from NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group to get their ideas off the ground.

The new Healthier Hull Community Fund invites groups across the city to apply for funding for projects that aim to improve the health of their community, get people active or improve ways to help people look after their own health/self-care.

Applicants can be from anywhere; however the project they are looking to run must benefit residents within Hull.

Applicants have until 30 August 2013 to apply for funding. The application process is designed to be simple with support from the CCG to ensure that there are no barriers to completing the forms.

Healthier Hull Community Fund application forms and further information can be found at www.hullccg.nhs.uk or are available via (01482) 344700.

For anyone who would like some help completing the application, a “Help with your grant application” session will be held at The Maltings:

‘Help with your grant application’ session

Tuesday 20th August 2013

From 1:30pm

In the board room at The Maltings, Silvester Square, Silvester Street HU1 3HA

To book your place please email HULLCCG.contactus@nhs.net or ring 01482 344869

What makes the process different from other grant schemes is that shortlisted applicants are invited to present their proposal to an audience made up of people in their local area who have the final say, by voting on the projects that should get the go-ahead. The public voting events will be set for October and funding released to successful applicants very shortly after.

For further information and to submit an application for the Healthier Hull Project Fund please visit www.hullccg.nhs.uk or telephone 01482 344700.
