The Bute Health and Wellbeing Network is inviting applications from island groups for up to £2,000 in grant support.
The network, one of seven funded by NHS Highland’s Argyll and Bute community health partnership to promote and improve healthy lifestyles, has £6,340 to award in local health grants this year.
The application can be for a one-off event or for a new initiative which will sustain itself after the initial funding, though ongoing funding will be considered in exceptional circumstances if evidence of long-term sustainability can be provided.
To be eligible for funding, projects should address one or more of the following priorities: alcohol and drug use, early years education (ages 0-5), health inequalities, healthy weight, mental wellbeing, older people, teenage transition and tobacco use.
The deadline for applications is Friday, August 15, for consideration at the network’s meeting on August 22.
For more information, and for an application form, contact the network’s co-ordinator Dee Hancock on BHWN@homestartmajik.eclipse.co.uk or 07887 511022.
