Healthy Communities Together is a new programme developed in partnership between The National Lottery Community Fund and The King's Fund.
The programme aims to support local areas to develop effective and sustainable partnerships between the voluntary and community sector, the NHS and local authorities to improve health and wellbeing, reduce health inequalities and empower communities.
As well as providing grant funding, the programme will support the development of relationships between partners, identifying and agreeing how best to work together, to ensure the involvement of organisations working across communities, and create a plan of activities.
The programme consists of two phases. In phase 1, a maximum of six areas will receive up to £50,000 funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and a package of learning and development support from the King's Fund for up to nine months to develop their partnership and project plans.
Applications for phase 1 are to be submitted by 27 March, and with projects for phase 1 are projected to start in July 2020.
At the end of this phase, each site will be invited to apply for phase 2 of the programme for further funding and support.
Applications for phase 2 will be assessed on the strength of the partnerships that have developed, their involvement of relevant organisations working across communities, and the strength and feasibility of their project plans to deliver meaningful benefits for people and communities.
Successful partnerships will receive up to £450,000, as well as ongoing learning and development support from The King's Fund, over a further three years.
They will reach a decision on phase 2 areas in early 2021.
