The King’s Fund in partnership with the National Lottery Community Fund has launched a new £3 million Healthy Communities Together programme to empower voluntary and community sector organisations and the local health and care sector to work together to boost the health and wellbeing of their communities. The programme consists of two phases. In phase 1, a maximum of six areas will receive up to £50,000 funding and a package of learning and development support for up to nine months to develop their partnership and project plans. The closing date for application for phase 1 is the 27th May 2020 with projects for phase 1 projected to start in September 2020. At the end of this phase, each location will be invited to apply for phase 2 of the programme for further funding and support. Click here
