Public Health Agency - Making Life Better and ‘Take 5’ Steps to Wellbeing Grants Funding 2019-20

The Public Health Agency (PHA) have identified funding to address Health and Wellbeing in Northern Ireland (Western, Belfast, Southern & South-Eastern Areas).  The Grants will support a range of strategic themes and priorities including:

  • ‘Making Life Better’ (Public health framework) priorities

  • Mental Health, Emotional Well-being, Suicide Prevention and Self-Harm

The PHA are inviting community and voluntary sector organisations, through the CLEAR Project, to apply for non-recurring small grants to address the outlined themes.

The PHA has commissioned the CLEAR Project to facilitate this process in the Western, Southern, South Eastern and Belfast Local Commissioning Group areas. Small grants have already been allocated in the Northern area via the four community networks.

Two types of awards are available under this scheme.

  • Grants of up to £1,000 that non-constituted and constituted non-profit taking Community / Voluntary Sector groups can apply for.

  • Grants of between £1,001 and to a maximum of £5,000 for constituted, non-profit taking Community / Voluntary sector groups.
