Health funding open to Warrington charities

01.06.2018

We’ve opened our annual funding scheme to help local health causes make a difference.

Our Healthy Communities Fund is offering grants of £1,000 to four registered charities or community groups that can demonstrate how their project will improve health for people in Warrington in the coming year.

We’ve announced a partnership with Dementia UK to support the charity’s free and specialist-led Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline this year, but we’re also looking for local health projects seeking funding.

Our Head of Public Affairs, Claire Rick, says: “We know from the staff and patients who use our primary care buildings that community groups and local charities are playing an increasingly important role in helping tackle health challenges – and that’s where our fund is aiming to help.

“We look forward to hearing from local charities and groups and to working with them over the next 12 months.”

Last year, Active Cheshire, Warrington Youth Club, Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation and BEAT, the eating disorders charity, all secured project funding from the scheme.
