Funding opportunities to improve workforce health

Grants of up to £60,000 to provide practical activities that support health and wellbeing locally are available through the Healthier City and Hackney Fund 2019/20.

The Fund has been made available through a partnership between the City of London Corporation, London Borough of Hackney and the City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

One of the priority topics for this year’s fund is “Workforce Health”, with a focus on collaboration between micro-businesses employing staff in the City of London and/or Hackney and organisations in the VCSE (voluntary, community and social enterprise) sector. Projects should aim to support and promote good wellbeing among these organisations’ employees, or the wider workforce.

Applications for funding are currently open and will close on 16 November 2018. Projects will be delivered from 1 May 2019.
