Argyll and Bute Community Health Partnership has a budget of £5,843 for Bute’s local health and wellbeing networks, and is now accepting applications for funding support.
Last year the Bute network allocated funding to 11 projects with a range of activities including ‘girls in sport’, the regeneration of playrooms, Port Bannatyne’s Get Into Golf’ equipment, issues affecting young people, Bute Schools Cricket Project, and the Keep Calm and Curry On Project.
A recent evaluation carried out noted the positive effect on the sustainability of the groups who had received support: it increased their capacity to deliver services and activities in the future; improved their reputation; allowed them to recruit and develop volunteers; provided facilities and equipment needed to establish services and activities; and opened up access to additional grant funding.
Sharon Erskine of Home Start said: “This grant enables us to make a huge amount of difference locally with a relatively small amount of funding and a very easy application process and comprehensive monitoring report.”
The Health and Wellbeing network is open to any organisation or group who wishes to support our aims in reducing health inequalities.
For further information please contact your local co-ordinator, Dee James, on 07887 511 022 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
