Community Health

The Networks Involving Communities in Health Improvement (NICHI) Project  is now inviting applications to its small grants scheme for innovative projects that aim to improve health and social wellbeing. The scheme is open to community and voluntary groups that operate within the ten Council areas of the Northern area – Antrim, Carrickfergus,  Newtownabbey, Ballymena, Ballymoney, Moyle, Larne, Cookstown, Magherafelt & Coleraine.

 Grants of up to £1000 are available for projects that aim to improve health and social wellbeing by making healthy choices easier, reducing health inequalities and building local communities. NICHI particularly welcomes proposals which address poverty and/or social isolation and which target the top 30% most disadvantaged Super Output Areas in the PHA Northern Locality.

 The fund is open for applications from Thursday 26th June until Tuesday 19th August 2014. Please contact your local Network (details below) for an application pack which will provide further information on who can apply and what can be funded.

 For groups in Ballymena, Ballymoney, Larne & Moyle, contact North Antrim Community Network (Veronica McKinley) on 02821 772100 or

 The NICHI Small Grants Scheme is supported by funding from the Public Health Agency. It is separate from and in addition to the recently advertised Grants Scheme for Promoting Mental and Emotional Wellbeing and Suicide Prevention.
