Network Oban Lorn and the Inner Isles


The purpose of the network is to develop local partnership working and planning for health improvement activity in the Oban Lorn and Inner Isles area.   Our network has representation from public sector,  business and voluntary sector.

We meet on a regular basis throughout the year with short meeting  ( max 2 hours) to inform, share and learn from each other to  support our communities in OLI.


The local network devolved budget of £17000 is now open for applications.

 Applications  of up to £2000 are invited  from  groups, organisations, public sector or individuals who are able to  demonstrate  the activity proposed will support our local action plan delivery. This year funding should have an emphasis on  increasing physical activity and supporting people to live better lives with long term health conditions.

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  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
