In the build up to our Virtual Falkirk Funders Fayre this year, we’re spotlighting the funders who are attending the event for the first time ever.
Our first spotlight features an organisation many may not think of as a funder, but who has a new and exciting programme with over £800,000 available: Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP)!
Falkirk HSCP’s session takes place on the first day of the event, Tuesday 8th March at 1pm.
Their Health Inequalities and Wellbeing Fund launches next month, with £830,000 to improve outcomes on the key areas, “Health and Social Inequalities” and “Health and Wellbeing”. Projects can support both these areas, but they must support at least one.
This one-off fund can be used over 2 years, and is open to community and third sector groups and organisations – including social enterprises.
Organisations can apply for up to £25,000; preference will be given to proposals that include match funding (this is required where services go beyond the scope of integration.) Match funding can be direct (finance) or in-direct (existing staff and volunteer time).
However, they will also accept proposals for 100% funding if activity is in-scope of integrated health and social care.
Further information is available via the Fund Guidance document, or during Falkirk HSCP’s session.
This is another incredible amount of funding to come into the Falkirk area, which is a credit to, and recognition of, the immensely valuable and essential work of the third sector. If your group or organisation’s work covers “Health and Social Inequalities” and “Health and Wellbeing”, we would encourage you to book a place and attend Falkirk HSCP’s session.
