We are looking for innovative ideas for projects that will improve the health and wellbeing of local people. Individuals, organisations, community and voluntary groups are all welcome to apply – unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from statutory organisations (please see detailed guidance for more information).
The impact of COVID-19 has seen many positive changes, both in lifestyle and community spirit - we want to take this opportunity to understand how we can support and maintain some of these new and rediscovered benefits for people and communities. By supporting projects and approaches that are community-focussed we can begin to build an approach that tackles broader inequalities that affect our health.
The CCGs are committed to addressing inequalities within our local communities. The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone. We are interested to hear from those who have ideas that can support people most in need and have the potential to alleviate the impact hardship. Listening to our communities over the course of 2020 has highlighted a number of priority areas for consideration including:
- Physical health, self-care and prevention
- Mental wellbeing
- Loneliness and social isolation
- Digital exclusion and accessibility
- Anxiety and lack of aspiration (18-30)
