West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (WY&H HCP) has launched a new Targeted Prevention Grant Fund worth £100,000 to help reduce the gap in health equalities across the area.

The aim of the fund is to support targeted, community level preventative interventions that will reduce harmful health behaviours, improve health outcomes and contribute to a reduction in inequalities for population groups who are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and the indirect social implications of measures such as isolation and shielding.

The fund particularly welcomes innovative proposals that are founded on a partnership approach by working across health and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations and those that support winter wellbeing relating to food security, social isolation or winter warmth.

Partners will be invited to apply for eight grants of funding between £1,000 – £5,000 and four grants of funding of between £5,001 and £15,000.
