Harnessing the Power of Communities Opens for Grant Applications

/, MailChimp, News/Harnessing the Power of Communities Opens for Grant Applications

Forum Central and Leeds Community Foundation are working in partnership with funding from West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (WY&H) to ensure the Third Sector is better connected, influential and resourced and an active, integral part of local health and care systems transformation and systems-wide culture-shift.

Harnessing the Power of Communities (HPoC) is the WY&H Transformation programme to embed the third sector across all areas of activity through both inclusion and investment.

Our vision is to establish a new relationship with communities built around good work on the co-production of services and care in order to support people to greater self-care, prevent ill-health, and the implementation of the Five Year Forward View and NHS Long Term Plan ambitions to join-up community services.

This small grants programme will support organisations and projects which will improve the health and wellbeing of people in communities identified as the most deprived in Leeds, building on local assets to address locally identified needs.

Part of the wider Harnessing the Power of Communities programme, it aims to develop, strengthen and sustain Third Sector community activity in Leeds that demonstrates health outcomes and build the capacity of the third sector as an integral part of the health and care system.

For the full criteria, and to submit an application, please visit the Leeds Community Foundation website

The deadline to apply is 12 noon Thursday 20 February 2020.
