CDHN - Mentoring and Grants Programme to tackle health inequalities - Now Open!

The Mentoring & Grants Programme will offer five local groups/organisations in each Health & Social Care Trust area the opportunity to take part in a five-month programme from October 2019 to February 2020.

Successful applicants will have support from the Elevate Programme team and we are working in partnership with a Mentoring Organisation in each Health & Social Care Trust area, listed below.

  • Belfast                                 Women’s Tec

  • South Eastern                    County Down Rural Community Network (CDRCN)

  • Southern                             Supporting People and Communities Everyday (SPACE)

  • Northern                             Mid-East Antrim Agewell Partnership (MEAAP)

  • Western                              ARC Healthy Living Centre

Successful applicants will be supported by the Mentoring Organisations in their area to work through plans and activities to take forward the health inequalities idea outlined in their application form. This will involve 1:1 meetings, group discussions and best practice visits with other groups/organisations over the five-month period of the programme. There will be opportunities for new learning, mentoring support, connecting with others and developing skills that will bring the applicant’s grant ideas to life.

The grant offer will be £5,000 to each of the five successful applicants. How that is spent and the impact it makes will be monitored and evaluated by the Elevate team and relevant partners in the Elevate Programme. Achievements and learning from the Mentoring & Grants Programme will be shared at a Celebration event in March 2020 with all successful applicants required to take part in the event.
