Small Grants for Healthy Activities

SMALL GRANTS FOR HEALTHY ACTIVITIES are available for community and voluntary organisations from the Hull City Health Care Partnership (CHCP).

Hornsea Scouts – ‘new’ canoe

The CHCP social enterprise delivers NHS health care services in Hull and the East Riding. It has grants of up to £1,000 available for projects that contribute towards the health and well-being of people living in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

In order to apply for a grant your organisation must have been in existence for at least a year and have an annual income of less than £30,000. Applicant groups must have a written set of rules, governing document or constitution.

The grants can only support activities or event that relate to health or wellbeing. This could include dance, drama or sport. The project needs to be led by volunteers.

Denise Anderton, Social Business and Public Relations Director at City Health Care Partnership CIC said about the scheme:

“The small grants programme is a really important part of our ethos as a socially responsible organisation, which has the health and wellbeing of our local community at the heart of what we do. We want to connect with organisations that are at the centre of local communities and ensure our grants reach as many projects as possible.”

Previous small grants have funded (examples):

  • £250 to buy a second-hand canoe for Hornsea Scout Group
  • £450 to purchase old and traditional table-top games for a Withernsea Community project
  • £500 to buy a new football kit for Thorngumbald Boys AFC
  • £500 for new equipment for Bilton Activity Group
