Our Third Sector Health Grants
We are very proud to have partnered with the NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Groups Partnership to develop a new Third Sector Health Grants programme, which saw £2.3 million invested in over 50 community organisations that work to improve local people’s health.
This programme resulted in 77 varied and innovative projects that engaged our city’s diverse communities around wellbeing and reducing health inequalities, including Black and Minority Ethnic groups, children and young people, carers, sex workers, ex-offenders, Gypsies and Travellers, and people with learning disabilities.
From one-to-one intense mental health support, to group learning around parenting and healthy eating, the programme promoted the importance of improving health and wellbeing in a range of diverse settings.
To enhance the legacy of this health program, we hosted a celebration event and launched a report.
This provided a rare chance for key health and local authority partners to connect with those who delivered the work and share best practice. The work achieved continues to highlight the Third Sector health offer and the need for longer-term funding.
