The Health Inequalities VCSE Grant Fund is open for a second phase for VCSE Organisations and projects working with what is known as ‘Core20Plus5’ populations.  This is the 20% most deprived parts of the Lincolnshire population (according to the Index of Multiple Deprivation) and also the 5 health issues or conditions that have the greatest impact on the lives of people in Lincolnshire.  

Following the first phase call for projects and activities, we are pleased to say 10 projects across Lincolnshire were successful in their applications to the VCSE Health Inequalities Grant Fund.  Some successful applicants, such as the Lincolnshire Nappy Library are working countywide, and some work in smaller specific communities.  Most successful applications were from organisations working in urban areas though some such as Glint and The Askefield Project are more rural. 

In this second phase of funding we would like to focus on supporting activities and groups that work with your coastal and rural communities, however you are welcome to apply no matter where you work in Lincolnshire. 

As with the first phase proposals are invited for funding up to the value of £5,000. 

You may make a joint application with either 1 or 2 other VCSE organisations for a total of, £10,000 or £15,000 respectively, if a partnership approach will add significant value to your proposal. The deadline is Wednesday the 3rd of April 2024.
