Have your say

GRASSROOTS health projects are being given the chance to bid for up to £2,000 of funding.

Grants of up to £2,000 are being offered to individuals, projects and groups to make it easier for people to share their experiences of health and care services in Hampshire.

Healthwatch Hampshire has launched the £30,000 Community Cash Fund scheme.

Manager Steven Taylor said: ‘We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get their ideas or projects funded and so there is no need for the group to be a registered charity or official group.

‘We are looking to invest in the capacity of small grassroots projects and will judge projects on their merits.

‘It could just be a couple of hundred pounds to pay for refreshments so a neighbourhood can meet to share their experiences with each other and pass the feedback to our team.’

Interested people need to complete a short application form by September 14, and will hear by the end of September if they have been successful.
