Launch of a new targeted grant fund for Hull

Connect Well Hull is the new ‘social prescribing’ service for people who live in Hull or are registered with a GP (doctor) in Hull. The service is delivered in partnership by Citizens Advice Hull & East Riding and North Bank Forum. It helps people to access support and guidance on a range of issues, including linking people with community services and advice on money, benefits or housing problems.

The programme was commissioned by NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Hull City Council. In addition to providing advice and support, the service will help to identify gaps in services across the city.

To help address these gaps, commissioners are making a further investment in health and wellbeing outcomes through a targeted grant fund over the next three years.

The first round will focus on projects, activities and services that help to address the need for early intervention and prevention, particularly those that:

  • Keep people fitter, healthier and independent
  • Encourage self-help for individuals
  • Reduce the pressure on GP practices
  • Reduce visits to accident and emergency departments
  • Delay the need for residential care and hospital admissions
  • Help organisations to work in partnership to deliver bigger and better services.

The deadline for the first round is 9am on Monday the 22nd of January 2018. Grants of between £500 and £40,000 are available. 

Support is available for all organisations who need help in completing the application form or who wish to discuss their ideas – please contact:

Jane Thompson, Grants Officer, Tel: 01482 499030, Email: jane.thompson@nbforum.org.uk

The application form is here, and support will be available from the 2nd of January.

Applications will be assessed by a panel that includes representatives from NHS Hull CCG and Hull City Council.

Grants from CoastNEL

Deadline 28th February 2018

In a move sure to be welcomed by community and voluntary groups, businesses and visitors alike, CoastNEL has just announced that they are making available a number of grants totalling £170,000 to organisations looking to put on events and activities in the Cleethorpes area.

CoastNEL is the private sector led group responsible for allocating, distributing and spending the £3.8 million awarded to Cleethorpes as part of the Coastal Community Funding Initiative and its chair Lawrence Brown said: “It is well known that we were successful in securing £3.8 million of Government funding and have started our engagement and consultation process in terms of changes to the street scene such as new lighting columns, upgraded footpaths etc.  What might be less well known is that within our bid we had identified a sum of £170,000 of funding to encourage community events in Cleethorpes and also to look at extending the season outside the traditional summer months”.

There are three different types of grant available

  1. Up to £500 for small community groups looking to put on small scale events or activities
  2. Up to £1,000 for businesses to work together to put on public events that will boost trade, increase footfall and enhance the existing events programme, for example, food and drink fairs and artisan markets
  3. Up to £15,000 for professional events providers looking to bring new and imaginative visitor experiences into the resort that will attract more people and ideally extend the tourism season.  These experiences will promote Cleethorpes as a destination location with a variety of arts, cultural, heritage and sporting events.  The grant must include match funding, attract large numbers of visitors and complement the existing events programme.

At this stage it is thought that there will be three rounds of funding windows and the events must be delivered by October 2019.  Applications for the first round must be submitted by 28 February 2018.

Councillor Matt Patrick, North East Lincolnshire Council’s portfolio holder for tourism, said: “This is a great way of encouraging more people to visit Cleethorpes and see the changes that will be happening in and around the resort.  Working with partners such as CoastNEL we have been looking at ways of extending the season and bringing visitors into the resort all year round, this is the first stage in that process.”

Lawrence Brown concluded: “The Government has made it clear that this money can only be used for these types of projects and has to be allocated wisely.  As long as an event complies with the necessary health and safety then we are making it as simple as possible for someone to apply for the funds.”

More information can be obtained here where grant application forms and details of submission dates are also available. 

About CoastNEL and these funds:
CoastNEL is a subgroup of North East Lincolnshire’s Visitor Economy Services and Retail Group (VESR).  Both groups are private sector led and work with the local authority in developing strategy to improve the working and living environment in North East Lincolnshire. For details of the group, visit the web page above.

The funds were awarded in May 2017 as part of round 4 of the Coastal Community Fund administered by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
