Making health and social care services work better, for everyone

Funding opportunities are available for innovative community-based initiatives that promote health and wellbeing across Warwickshire.

Warwickshire County Council has made funds available to community and voluntary sector groups under the countywide health and wellbeing grants programme. South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group has also provided additional funds for projects in South Warwickshire.

Groups can bid for funding from £5,000 to a maximum of £10,000 per initiative. Projects must be delivered in Warwickshire and need to address one or more of the following health and wellbeing priorities:

  • Children and young people health and wellbeing
  • Promoting healthy ageing
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Support for carers
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Transport and road safety
  • Reducing inequalities in health and wellbeing outcomes

Portfolio holder for adult social care and health, Les Caborn, said:

“This funding is a great opportunity for community-based organisations to grow and develop their programmes aimed at specific health needs to further support the health and wellbeing of our residents.”

The online application opens on Wednesday 18th December 2019 and closes at 12 noon on Monday 3rd February 2020.

Organisations are asked to submit an application online via www.csw-jets.co.uk. Once the application is live it can be viewed under ‘Tenders’ and found by searching either ‘WCC-8587’ or ‘Warwickshire Public Health Grant Funding’.

Support from Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action (CAVA) is also available to voluntary and community groups with the application process. There is no cost for this support. Contact Tracy Southam, Mid Area Manager via tracy@wcava.org.uk if you require advice or support.
