Community health fund

The Brighton and Hove Community Health Fund is a fund for small groups.

It aims to support and fund small groups with an annual income below £35,000, which are based in Brighton or Hove and want to address a particular health issue or run a health-related activity.

The fund works with groups who are just getting started and those working in under-represented communities, particularly: LGBT groups, those working with young people, older people or undertaking inter-generational activities.

The fund provides:

  • one-to-one support to help your group set up, and to make an application
  • a grant of up to £1,500
  • the chance to meet other groups similar to yours



The deadline for applications to this fund is 13 January 2017
