Healthy Norwich innovation grants up for grabs

Healthy Norwich logoCan your community group come up with a really innovative way to help people in the Norwich area lead healthier and happier lives?

Because you can now apply for thousands of pounds of funding from Healthy Norwich, the campaign run by the NHS and local councils to improve lifestyles and promote good health.

The money will fund small projects that encourage and support local people to lead healthier lives. For example to prevent people from smoking, to support their mental wellbeing or help people maintain a healthy weight.

£40,000 is being offered in grants by NHS Norwich Clinical Commissioning Group, one of the partners in Healthy Norwich, in association with Norfolk Community Foundation. If there are enough really good ideas, it will consider making more money available. Each grant will be for a maximum of £5,000 but time is running out, applications need to be in by 5pm on 13th April, 2017.

You can apply online at http://www.norfolkfoundation.com/funds/health-wellbeing-innovation-grants-2016-2018/.
