Healthy Sandwell Micro-Grants: Open for Applications

The Healthy Sandwell Micro-Grant Fund is still open for applications – and the maximum grant amount available has been increased…to £500.

The purpose of the Healthy Sandwell Micro-Grant Fund is to enable local voluntary, community and not-for-profit/charitable organisations to deliver an Engagement Activity that includes a short, health-related promotion of the service(s) available from Healthy Sandwell, including NHS Health Checks.

These services include:

• Alcohol services: to support those people who are struggling with how much they are drinking;

• Drug services: support and advice on drugs, helping you decide what you need to do to change your drug use or if you are concerned about someone else’s drug use;

• Get Active: tailored support for all ages, families and individuals to get more active, eating better and maintain a healthy weight for good;

• Healthy Eating: support to help you, your family and friends eat well and feel great;

• Healthy Weight: FREE support for all ages, families and individuals to get more active, eating better and maintain a healthy weight for good;

• Stop Smoking: FREE help and support to help more smokers quit;

• Wellbeing: support to help people feel better within themselves including…improving confidence, dealing with stress, relaxation techniques and more;

• NHS Health Checks: a national screening programme for 40-74 year olds to check aspects of your health that could lead to conditions like heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

We are looking for each Engagement Activity to attract a minimum of 25 people (living and/or working in Sandwell and between the ages of 25 and 74).

Each Engagement Activity must contain a health-related promotion of the services available from Healthy Sandwell, together with the NHS Health Check programme.

Some of the activities funded in earlier rounds include:

• A ‘Pamper Party’;

• A ‘Picnic in the Park’; and

• Support for a Group’s AGM (with a direct health promotion included).

The Healthy Sandwell Micro-Grant programme is delivered on a rolling basis and will accept applications until all funding is allocated.

Project delivery and associated reporting needs to be completed within 6 months of grant approval.
