Bute Information Day 14th June ’19

Dee was at the Bute Information Day at the Discovery Centre in Rothesay today 14th June with her Health and Wellbeing stand.  The event was hosted by Bute Alcohol and Drugs Partnership.


Following the scoring panel meeting earlier this week we are in a position to re-open our Health and Wellbeing Grant Fund for Bute.

There is £880 remaining in our pot to be allocated for projects increasing physical activity and supporting people to live better lives with long term health conditions.  This year your project must also must link with either NHS/HSCP/Council services and demonstrate a clear referral pathway – this can be informal.  Bids remain capped at £750 and should be received by close of business on 30th June.

If you are unsure if your project will meet the criteria or you have any questions about the form, criteria or process, we are happy to help, please email hwnbute@ab-rc.org.uk or call our Dunoon Office on 01369 700800 (please ask for Dee or Nicola).

Please help spread the word by sharing with your wider contacts.
