Network Mid Argyll

The Mid Argyll Health and Wellbeing Network enjoys a healthy membership of over 150 people, and is coordinated by Antonia Baird.
Anyone who is interested in improving the health of people in mid Argyll is welcome to join the network – we have members from the NHS, from local community organisations, health based businesses, and community representatives.

We meet at least 4 times a year, to network, build partnerships, share knowledge, enjoy presentations and participate in a healthy lunch.

In between meetings, members receive bulletins with relevant news and information.

Other meetings, 2019/20:

23rd October 2019; 22nd January 2020

Planned activities 2019:

These activities are designed for you/us to collaborate and share resources to support great health habits and make mid Argyll well-resourced, well-informed and well linked up. All are welcome to participate. Details will be developed with network members and information will be circulated in the bulletins.

The Mid Argyll network is one of a group of local organisations planning a positive mental health event in the autumn in Lochgilphead – it will be creative and fun.

Grant timetable, 2019:  New funding and dates have now been announced for ONE ROUND of funding – there is a total of £5,500 for Mid Argyll network.

The deadline for appliccation has been extended to 24th June – if you are not sure if you are elegible, please get in touch for reassurance.

This year funding is available for increasing physical activity and supporting self management of long term health conditions.  We are also looking for evidence of a formal or informal link to the NHS/HSCP with your project and you will be asked: – “In what ways does your project meet the need to increase physical activity/or support the management of long term conditions? How does it link in to NHS/HSCP/Council services?” (question B on form).

The fund is now open to appliccation, and the deadline for receipt of bids is Thursday 6th June, at midnight. Notification of success or otherwise will be on or  before Friday 21st June and projects should not start or plan to start before then.

This will be a competitive round so sticking closely to the criteria will be really important for success – please feel free to contact the coordinator before you submit a bid to get an opinon on the elegibility of your idea or project.

There will be no more than £1,000 allocated per bid in this network – thanks.

Good luck to everyone and hope that there are some amazing ideas out there that can come to fruition!
