Health Inequalities Funding 2014-15
Gloucestershire County Council allocated a budget of £40,000 to Cheltenham Borough Council to support health inequality projects. This is in recognition that district councils are central in delivering health improvement in communities and are key partners in delivering public health priorities.
CBC agreed to allocate funding to a range of local projects via a grants round that was open to any formally constituted organisations including voluntary and community sector groups, social enterprises, public sector organisations and schools.
On 11 November, Cabinet agreed this list of projects that would receive funding.
Cabinet also agreed that the remaining £20k would be allocated by a second round of bidding that would use the same criteria and bidding documents as the first round.
Health inequality grants will be allocated to projects that can demonstrate how they will meet one of the five Gloucestershire Health & Well Being Strategy priority areas:
Reducing the harm caused by alcohol
Improving mental health
Improving health & wellbeing into older age
Tackling health inequalities
The assessment panel will also be looking at:
How the project will target health inequalities by focussing on geographical areas of deprivation or communities of interest
How the project will benefit communities in Cheltenham Borough
