The Horncastle & District Health & Wellbeing Fund is open to receive grant applications for up to £2,000 from community groups in East Lindsey if their aim is to improve the health of local people.

Grants of up to £500 can also be given to individuals to help improve their quality of life to help them buy equipment (wheelchairs, beds, medical aids etc), pay for transport, travel or support costs not provided by statutory bodies.

The next closing date for receipt of applications is on Friday, September 1.  

The application form is straight forward and a decision will be notified in early October 2017.

The fund’s aim is to promote health and wellbeing principally for the residents of Horncastle but also the surrounding district of East Lindsey.  

Successful applicants include young carers, dementia support groups, community hubs, access to transport and specialist equipment.  

Groups can apply for the costs connected with access to local services and activities, or those that increase physical activity or mobility.  Does your group provide health care, support for people with disabilities or older people?  If so, you may be eligible to apply for money to buy equipment, pay for venue hire, telephone, refreshments, volunteer costs/training, etc.

Sue Fortune, Grants Director at Lincolnshire Community Fund, is available to visit you or your project, to find out more about how it reaches those in need and advise about form filling, costings etc.
