High Peak Health and Wellbeing Partnership Small Grants Scheme

The new Public Health Small Grants Scheme for High Peak will target help and support to local voluntary and community groups and organisations delivering activities and projects at grass roots level.  

How much can you apply for?

Up to £1000.   

Who can apply?

Any voluntary/community groups or local people within the High Peak area (see map in Guidance Notes), who come together to support the health and wellbeing of their community are eligible to apply for funding.

For example, your group might be a luncheon club, a social group, a self-help group or another type of community group that provides help and support.  You might want to set up a new group to meet a local need that’s currently not being addressed.

We want to hear from people who’d like to make a difference to their community.  .    

Projects should aim to meet the following criteria:

  • Promote health and wellbeing
  • Be delivered in and support the residents of the High Peak area
  • Seek to continue after the funded period
  • Link to at least one of the priorities of the High Peak Health and Wellbeing Partnership.

The grant scheme will be administered by High Peak CVS.

Applications should be returned by 11 February  2019 to: Liz Fletcher at High Peak CVS, using email :  Or post to Liz Fletcher, High Peak CVS, Dunbar House, 105 Buxton Road, Whaley Bridge High Peak SK23 7HX
