The £100,000 Targeted Prevention Grant Fund for West Yorkshire and Harrogate aims to support targeted community level preventative interventions that will reduce harmful health behaviours, improve health outcomes and contribute to a reduction in inequalities for people who are likely to be disproportionately at risk or affected by COVID-19 and the indirect social implications of measures such as isolation and shielding.

The fund welcomes innovative ideas which deliver a partnership approach to reducing health inequalities by working across health and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) partners.

WY&H is looking for sustainable interventions that go beyond the immediate impacts of the pandemic and seek to address the medium to longer term impacts on inequalities and increase resilience of individuals and communities.

The fund will welcome applications that support winter wellbeing relating to food security, social isolation or winter warmth.

Partners will be invited to apply for eight grants of funding between £1,000 - £5,000 and four grants of funding of between £5,001 and £15,000.

They encourage smaller community organisations with an income under £20k to apply for funding.

Support is available to help you to review your application before submission on request. If you would like additional support please contact Emmerline Irving – emmerline.irving@nhs.net

The deadline for the application will be 5:00pm on Friday 4 December 2020.
