Community groups, charities, voluntary sector and other not for profit organisations including parish and town councils in Rutland are invited to bid for Healthy Rutland Grant Scheme funding. The deadline for applications for the third round of funding is the 5th July 2019.

If you are part of one of these groups and need a small amount of funding to kickstart or support a project designed to improve the health and wellbeing in your community the scheme may be for you.

The Healthy Rutland Grant Scheme is funded by Public Health Grant and the Better Care Fund; and managed by Citizens Advice Rutland as part of the Rutland Community Wellbeing Service.

Simon Mutsaars from Citizens Advice Rutland said "the grants panel have already approved a number of bids from a range of community groups and voluntary sector organisations, and with a diverse spread of health and wellbeing ideas and requests including, running activity, growing foraging and cooking, community engagement events, community equipment, sports clubs, community green spaces and community clubs. We are eager to encourage other groups to apply for locally developed projects that will help people access activity that improves their health and wellbeing."

Full details, application forms and guidance notes, including details on eligible organisations, and example project ideas are available by visiting http://www.rutlandwellbeing.org.uk/news/healthy-rutland-grant-scheme or calling 01572 725805.

The grant panel would encourage all potential applicants to speak with the scheme development officer prior to submitting an application.
