Grants Available for Shropshire Voluntary Health Projects

Voluntary and community groups in Shropshire have until 9 February 2014 to apply for funding from the Shropshire Community Fund.  Jan Dodd, Grants Administrator, from the Shropshire Rural Community Council said “The purpose of the fund is to provide grants of up to £750 to help groups in Shropshire to start or develop their activities around health and wellbeing. 

Examples of projects which may be funded include running healthy living activities and health focused self-help groups.  Other examples of things we have funded in the past are training costs for staff or volunteers, volunteers expenses, and items of equipment”.
