A step forward in addressing health inequalities
Community and voluntary organisations can now apply for a grant from the Wellness Community Fund.
The last two years have shone an uncomfortable light on the health inequalities that exist across the country. Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is committed to addressing some of these inequalities - part of that is by encouraging community and voluntary organisations to apply for a grant from the new Wellness Community Fund.
The fund can be used towards community engagement and outreach work that helps to improve mental & physical wellbeing and/or reduces health inequalities, especially for those health issues particularly impacted by the spread of coronavirus.
Applications for the grant are especially welcomed for initiatives that engage with residents to understand barriers and increase awareness of the benefits of activities that contribute to physical and mental wellbeing.
