Healthy Hearts Grants
Healthy Heart Grants enable community organisations to carry out new, original and innovative projects that actively promote heart health and help to prevent or reduce the risks of heart disease in specific groups or communities.
Community projects should aim to promote activities that promote a healthy heart and reduced risk of heart disease such as cooking skills, healthy eating, improving physical activity levels and mental wellbeing.
Non-profit organisations such as registered charities, community groups, voluntary organisations and sports groups based and working in the UK may apply for grants of up to £10,000.
In response to the pandemic, funding is now offered for projects that can be delivered safely and remotely or with social distancing measures in place that last up to 12 months although projects for a shorter duration may also be considered. Grants for purchases of equipment only will only be considered if the equipment can be safely used under current social distancing measures and the equipment is used to promote heart health.
Applications for the grants programme for Scotland open on 23 August with a deadline of 20 September 2021.
