You Decide - Public Health Grants

£400,000 Funding Boost for Local Communities


 


You Decide


 


Local people are being asked to come forward with ideas for a £400,000 community fund aimed at tackling health issues in their areas. This might include a single individual with an exciting idea to get people active where they live, to a local voluntary organisation experienced in providing support and advice to people to help them to eat healthily.


 


The money comes from the Council’s Public Health Service and is targeted at projects which will positively address health issues such as obesity, lack of physical fitness, and mental wellbeing on a very local level.


 


The initiative has been designed to maximise potential benefits by allowing local people to decide what will work for them in their area. This includes encouraging innovative projects which make the most of community links.


 


Final funding decisions are being made at events organised by Locality Networks and supported by staff in the Council’s Communities Service. These will provide a great opportunity for local people to choose which projects they feel will make the best difference to their local area, as everyone who attends will have a vote. See the Cheshire East website for details of when and where your local event is happening (local Timelines)
