Healthy Lives, Healthy Future Fund 2016

Through the Rushcliffe Health Partnership we are inviting local groups and organisations to put forward proposals for projects that will take creative approaches to improving health locally. A maximum of £2,000 can be applied for per project (applications are limited to one project per organisation). Successful projects will promote health and well-being by identifying and addressing inequalities in health or the factors that cause ill-health. Projects can cover a number of themes and deliver in one or more geographical areas within the Borough of Rushcliffe. We are particularly keen to support projects which target the areas of highest need.
