Got a project that would benefit from  a helping hand?

This local network devolved budget of £21131 is almost  all completely  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.

The funding   is open to projects  which  have a  focus on wellness instead of illness to  improve the health of the population.  Priority will be given to initiatives that can demonstrate reducing health inequalities, breaking  down barriers to participation and  able to  demonstrate how the planned project  supports 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?
