Hackney Council’s Public Health team and the City and Hackney Clinicial Commissioning Group (CCG) have joined forces to offer an exciting grants fund for projects to run from May 2018.
This combines the existing Healthier Hackney Fund and the Innovation Fund, to create a larger programme that will support groups to deliver meaningful change for residents in Hackney and the City of London.
The scheme allows the Public Health team and the CCG to work with organisations from across the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sectors to create innovative solutions to long standing, large scale health issues, and to test ideas for new ways to deal with old problems.
This launch event will introduce the grants programme to interested groups, explain the application process and the priority health issues covered by the grants, allowing time for ideas sharing between organisations. This event is also an opportunity for those interested in applying to meet the funders and discuss any initial ideas for projects. The event will run on a drop in basis, and interested parties can talk informally to representatives from the Public Health team, the CCG, service leads for the priority health issues, the Community Partnerships team (who manage the grantfunding process), and groups who have been funded in previous rounds. There will also be a presentation with key information on the fund delivered at several intervals throughout the morning.
Refreshments and healthy snacks will be provided at the event.
Please be aware that there is no parking at the venue, but is easily reached by bus and is a short walk from both Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland overground stations.
