The Healthy Communities Together programme

National Lottery Fund: England Only

This programme offers up to £3 million of grant funding (over three years) to empower voluntary and community sector organisations to work together with the local health and care sector to boost the health and wellbeing of their communities.

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
