Over £23,000 of funding has already been given to 51 charitable organisations in the area. The grants of up to £500 have been able to support groups such as Kilham Playing Fields to create new running track to promote healthy exercise during lockdown and Hull 4 Heroes to provide support to Veterans and their families during lockdown.
The aim of the grant is focused on providing positive Health Outcomes for the people you support.
The HIGHFIVER Grants have been designed in response to the current Coronavirus challenges. We recognise that lots of groups are delivering outstanding work and are finding it hard to access resources. With this in mind, this fund is particularly focused on distributing small grants (of up to £500) to groups new and old who want to support the health and wellbeing of the people in their community.
The funding has been kindly provided by the local CCG for Hull and East Riding to support the unique ways that you can help improve the health of residents in our area.
As part of our commitment to helping charitable organisations thrive, we will be offering continued support to help you achieve your goals, with a particular focus on supporting you with governance and safeguarding.
• A healthier and active community.
• Improved self-management of health
• A connected community ready to help others
