In 2017 /18 the local network devolved budget of £21131 has been  distributed for this financial year.   Last year OLIHWN  funded projects throughout the Oban Lorn and Inner Isles area which   helped young and old, from  support services to young people ,homeless,  training to build community capacity, outdoor activities and much much more.

Review our draft   UPDATED HWN ACTIONS achieved 2017/18 draft version .  Further detail will be added post our seminar in March.

The funding  has supported  projects  which  have a  focus on wellness instead of illness to  improve the health of the population.  Priority  given to initiatives that  demonstrated reducing health inequalities, breaking  down barriers to participation and  which was able to   demonstrate how the planned project  supported delivery  of our four  Health Improvement Plan  Priorities :

  • Theme 1 – Getting the best start in life
  • Theme 2 – Working to ensure fairness
  • Theme 3 – Connecting people with support in their community
  • Theme 4 – Focusing on Wellness not illness

Do you have a small project that “fits the bill” which could assist  to  meet  the Joint Health Improvement Plan Priorities?     Join the network and help us achieve our aims and objectives
